££■ MOW," asked a Baltimore news- 
$ |_paperman, "do the members of 
the University faculty in general feel 
about Dr. Byrd's controversy with 'the' 
Baltimore newspaper?" 

We told the reporter that the Mary- 
land faculty, as well 
as the Maryland 
alumni and student 
body, were solidly 
behind President 
Byrd, appreciating 
that he has accom- 
plished so much for 
the University that 
loyalty to the Uni- 
versity's President 
is synonymous with 
loyalty to the Uni- 
Dr. Byrd yersity. 

Not long ago a group of Maryland 
alumni attended a banquet at which 
a prominent Maryland alumnus likened 
"the shadow of Thomas Jefferson which 
will always be recognized as falling 
across the campus of the University of 
Virginia" with the shadow of Dr. Byrd 
similarly across Maryland's campus. 
To Maryland alumni that is not laying 
it on too thick at all. They know the 
zeal and devotion, the continuous drive 
and relentless effort which Dr. Byrd has 
successfully expended toward the 
astounding development, academically 
and physically, of the University. They 
appreciate Dr. Byrd's ability as a leader 
and as an administrator. It is therefore 
quite natural that Maryland University 
people are intensely loyal to Dr. Byrd in 
his leadership and undertakings and to 
him personally. 

The writer has been around a bit, in 
the Service and out, many times in 
tight spots where the pay-off was on 
loyalty and loyalty alone. You won if 
you had it. You were sunk if you lacked 
it. This column might not be a bad spot 
to elaborate on loyalty. 

The most important feature of loyalty 
is that you can neither order nor buy it. 
There is no way in which you can con- 
jure it into being. YOU HAVE GOT 

Loyalty can be earned only by giving 

Loyalty from the bottom up cannot 
be retained without according loyalty 
from the top down. 

If anybody, anywhere, in any field of 
endeavor can show us a better example 
of loyalty than that which Dr. Byrd has 
shown for the State of Maryland and 
University of Maryland, then we'll 
show you ten year old newsboys who 
can make gold watches out of old straw 

There are people on the Maryland 
campus who laugh off the newspaper 
attacks on Dr. Byrd simply because they

Four things they must be to have 
a successful life: 





If any one of the four is left out,

Then others who tret so trosh

board the Ark. 

Loyalty is a permanent characteristic. 

Like ted hair or buck teeth, you have it 
or you lack it. 

There are no "degrees" of loyalty. 
You can't mark a fellow "2.5" in 
loyalty. He's loyal "4.0" or he's loyal 
"0.0." It's "A" or "F" and no middle 
ground. You can't be a little bit loyal 
any more than you can be a little bit 

A loyal fellow is loyal to his God, to 
his country, to his family, to his friends, 
to his school but, above all, he is loyal 
to himself. 

Without the latter he wouldn't be 
loyal to anybody or anything. That is 
the self respect which the Bard of Avon 
summed up, "Above all things to thine 
own self be true. Thou can'st not then 
be false to any man." 

Loyalty is mankind's greatest virtue. 
Pity the unhappy jruy who lacks it. 

Loyalty is greater than love for love 
is loyalty, one toward another. 

It is greater than religion for religion 
is loyalty to God. It is greater than 
patriotism for patriotism is loyalty to 
one's country. 

Loyalty is greater than charity for it 
includes charity, one toward another. 

Loyalty is a hard taskmaster. It asks, 
at times, great sacrifices and, at other 
times, the humblest of chores. 

The greatest example of loyalty to 
ideals was provided by the Gentle Jew- 
nailed to the cross on the Hill of Skulls 
so that millions of stained glass win- 
dows the world over today stand as 
symbols and reminders of Him who 
showed the way to die for loyalty.

In Flanders field and in the Par Pa- 
cific stand crosses, row on row, where 
brave men died at some disputed barri- 
cade Out of loyalty to their country. 

Those who die for loyalty never die 
in vain. Death is only incidental to life 
and time hut loyalty and ideals do not 

Many men have been, figuratively — 

and some literally — , crucified because 
they were loyal. 

An ounce of loyalty is worth ten 
pounds of cleverness. 

Elbert Hubbard, the famed Sage of 
East Aurora, once wrote, "If you work 
for a man, in heaven's name work for 
him. As long as you are part of an in- 
stitution do not condemn it. By doing 
so you are not injuring the institution; 
rather, you are disparaging yourself. If 
you must condemn, why, resign your 
position and when you are out, damn 
away to your heart's content!" 

We always thought old Fra Elbertus 
had something there and we liked par- 
ticularly his concluding line, "Get in 
line or get out!" 

One of the finest examples of loyalty 
to a subordinate was demonstrated by 
Abraham Lincoln in his famous letter 
to General Hooker. The development of 
the Lincoln-Hooker situation also 
shows the great cost of disloyalty and 
points up the fact that lack of it can- 
not be offset by ability and knowledge. 

Hooker had made it a practice to 
criticize his superior, General Burnside. 
Hooker had also criticized President 
Lincoln and had stated that the coun- 
try needed a dictator. Burnside had 
failed. Hooker had let it be known that 
he would have succeeded where Burn- 
side had failed. 

Lincoln's very good 
was not. However, 
man, did not let his 
friendship for Burnside stand in the 
way of loyalty to his country. 

So Lincoln gave Hooker command of 
the Army and accorded him every sup- 
port. However, Hooker did not win. He 
had to be relieved. Hooker suffered and 
many good men suffered with him. He 
and they drew the penalty of the 
criticism that had killed loyalty to 

Hooker was replaced by a Silent Man 
who was widely criticized for his per- 
sonal habits, his tactics, his administra- 
tion. But the Silent Man criticized no

Whenever some one questions the all 
encompassing value of loyalty; when 
doubt in that premise assails you, read 
ovei Lincoln's letter to Hooker. It is a 
gem. Here it is: — 

"Executive Mansion. 
"Washington, January jo. ; 
"Ma jar General Hook* 

"General: I have placed you at the 
head of the Army of the Potomac. Of 
course, I hate done this upon what ap- 
pears to me to be sufficient reasons, and 
yet I think it best for you to know that 
there are some things in regard to 
which I a in not quite satisfied with yon. 

"I believe you to be a brave and skill- 
ful soldier, which, of course, I like. 

"J also believe you do not mix politics

which is a valuable if not indispensable 

"You are a)iibitiou8, ivhich, within

General Burnside's command of the 
Army you have taken counsel of your 
ambition and thwarted him as much as 
you could, in which you did a great 
wrong to the counti~y and to a most 
meritorious and honorable brother 

"I have heard, in such way as to be- 
lieve it, of your recently saying that 
both the army and the government 
needed a dictator. Of course, it was not 
for this but in spite of it. that I have 
given you the command. Only those gen- 
i nils who gain successes can set up 
dictators. What I now ask of you is 
military success, and I will risk the

Part of the mission of a college edu- 
cation is to fit the graduate for leader- 
ship. However, a degree alone cannot 
do it. Education can only show the way. 

One of the most essential, yet most 
elusive qualities is that quality known 
as leadership. It is difficult to define.

A Board of Regents, composed of outstanding citizens of the Stale in various walks of life, governs the University of Maryland. The 
President of the University, by law, is Executive Officer of the Board. 

Members of the Board are appointed by the Governor of the State for terms of nine years each, beginning the first Monday in June. 
The Stale law also provides thai the Board of Regents also shall constitute the Slate Board of Agriculture. 

Mrs. Whilehursl, serving her second term, enjoys the distinction of being the only woman ever to serve on the Board. 

Judge Cole and Senator Tydings were fellow graduates at College Park in 1910 and both later were graduated from the Law School 

in Baltimore. 

IN A move expected to have vast 
educational implications, eleven 
Southern states have entered upon a 
mutual plan to aid one another in de- 
veloping a sound program of higher 
education. For the first time in the his- 
tory of this country, a regional system 
of education has been effected. 

For the time being the plan will cover 
only the fields of medicine, dentistry 
and veterinary medicine. Under this 
project, the colleges and universities 
that now maintain such graduate 
schools will admit students from other 
states. They will be accepted on the 
same basis as residents of the states 
where these regional centers are situ- 
ated. In this way, it is hoped, the South 
will be able to develop strong profes- 
sional schools on a regional basis. Be- 
cause of the tremendous expense in- 
volved in setting up a medical school, 
for example, it will be cheaper for a 
state to send its students to a medical 
school that already exists in a near-by 

In Ten States 

A Board of Control for Southern Re- 
gional Education was created by action 
of ten state legislatures — Arkansas, 
Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, 
Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, 
South Carolina and Tennessee. Virginia 
has been admitted pending removal of 
certain legal objections. Alabama, 
Texas and West Virginia are expected 
to join soon. 

Various reasons prompted the crea- 
tion of this board. For some time 
Southern educators have recognized the 
fact that they could not hope to set up

all the educational facilities needed on 
a state-wide basis. They knew that if 
they were to offer their students an 
adequate program of higher education, 
they would have to cooperate and pool 
their resources. 

Composition of Board 

The operation of the plan is simple. 
The Board of Control membership will 
include the Governor and three mem- 
bers, one a Negro, for each participat- 
ing state. 

Four institutions will provide serv- 
ices in veterinary medicine — Alabama 
Polytechnic Institute, Tuskegee Insti- 
tute, the University of Georgia and 
Oklahoma A. & M.'College. They will 
accept 119 first-year students under the 
regional arrangements, and will receive 
$1,000 per student from the states. 
Seven universities — Duke, Emory, 
Louisiana State, Meharry Medical Col- 
lege, Tennessee, Tulane and Vanderbilt 
— will admit 187 medical students, at 
$1,500 per student. Six institutions will 
provide services in dentistry — Emory, 
Loyola of Louisiana, Maryland, Med- 
ical College of Virginia, Meharry and 
Tennessee. They will accept 210 stu- 


dents, and the states will pay them 
$1,500 per student. 

Under the pooling arrangement, the 
universities will select the students ac- 
cording to their own admission policies 
and standards. However, the states will 
certify students as eligible, based on 
criteria that they establish. Under 
present plans, 233 white students and 
231 Negro students will receive train- 
ing in 1949-50 at a cost of $1,500,000 
to the states. The plan will have no 
effect on present segregation policies: 
white and Negro students will continue 
to attend their own respective schools. 

Further Development Expected 

Other fields are now under consid- 
eration. Regional arrangements may 
ultimately be adopted in graduate 
studies, social work, architecture, for- 
estry, engineering, agricultural and 
professional education. Moreover, ac- 
cording to the sponsors of the regional 
plan, other methods through which the 
institutions of higher learning can 
jointly serve the needs of the South 
might include joint use of research fa- 
cilities, exchange of faculty members 
and voluntary specialization.

According to Dr. John E. [vey, Jr., 
director of the regional board, the 
widespread support tliat has been re- 
ceived from the South indicates thai 

the new project will expand. He points 

out that by planning as a region the 
South can provide itself with the lead- 
ership, the imagination and the skills 
which it needs. 
Southern educators point out that the 

South has been dependent upon insti- 
tutions in other regions for the braining 
of leaders in many fields. In many 
Southern states no institution ofl 
courses at the Doctor of Philosophy 
level in any field. 

Both Qualit) and Quantity 

Regionalism in education, the univer- 
sity officials hold, is a way to improve 

both the quality and quantity of ad- 
vanced college training at a minimum 
cost. For example, there are five vet- 
erinary medical schools within the 
region. To provide plant facilities and 
develop a first-class veterinary college 
would cost close to $3,000,000. Thus 
the savings to a state under the re- 
gional plan will he considerable. Be- 
sides, it will help existing institutions 
strengthen their programs, rather than 
add other possibly second-rate ones to 
compete with the universities that now 
serve the South. 

Enthusiastic support for the regional 
plan was expressed by Millard F. Cald- 
well, former Governor of Florida, 
chairman of the Board of Control. Mr. 
Caldwell said that the Southern states, 
working together, could build the finest 
system of higher education in the 
United States or the world. He said 
the alternative, on a state-wide rather 
than regional basis would mean that 
Southern education would continue to 
"limp along," unable to meet the total 
needs of the region. 

Duplication of Effort 

It is obvious, Mr. Caldwell went on. 
that many states are duplicating what 
others are doing and in many fields 
none is doing a first-rate job. Various 
fields are wholly ignored. No state, he 
pointed out, can supply the best in 
every phase of education, because of 
lack of money or because of insufficient 
students to create an adequate school. 
Regional planning and cooperation ap- 
pear to be the answer. 

Other sections of the country have 
manifested an interest in similar pro- 
grams for their own needs. Dr. John 
Dale Russell, director of the division of 
highei education. United States Office 
of Education, believes that the pattern 
of cooperative support now being de- 
veloped on a regional basis in the South 
can be extended ultimately to all the 
states and territories. In fact, the 
American Council on Education is plan- 
ning to call together representatives 
from various groups some time this 
fall to see if the regional plan can be 
put into practice elsewhere. 

According to President Colgate W. 
Darden of the University of Virginia, 
the Southern regional program will 
measurably stimulate and improve col- 


lege and university facilities for both 
white and colored students. This plan, 
ed, is not in any way a racial 
one, as it will improve educational 
facilities for both whites and Negri 

Tulane University, participating in 

the regional program in medicine, is 
confident that the plan will strengthen 
higher education as it will eliminate 
duplication of facilities. Similarly, the 
president of Louisiana State University 
two strengthening effects on edu- 
cational facilities in the South: (1) It 
will provide immediately some expan- 
sion of professional education, and < 1 1 
the agitation and planning in connec- 
tion with regional education will add to 
the general concern about education in 
the South. 

Low-Coal Specialized Training 
The University of Tennessee, an 
ardent supporter of the regional plan 
since its inception, considers regional 
education a sensible method of giving 
Southern youth the highest quality of 
specialized training at a minimum cost. 
The plan enables each participating 
ins'itution to build exceptionally strong 
staffs in selected specialized fields in- 
stead of spreading its financial re- 
sources too thinly over a greater area 
of advanced studies. 

From the standpoint of a privately 
endowed institution, the immediate ef- 
fect of the regional plan, Emory Uni- 
versity notes, will be to provide finan- 
cial support in extremely expensive 
fields of professional education. 

Can Help South 

Meharry Medical College, where 
Negro students are trained, has signed 
a contract with the Regional Council 
to enroll competent students of the 
states in this region. President M. Don 
Clawson observes that it costs about 
$2,000 a year to educate a medical stu- 
dent. The tuition is $500, and now with 
the $1,500 that will be received from 
the state sending a student, the college 
will be in a sounder financial condition. 

It is clear that the project is ex- 
ceedingly significant. It can help the 
South build and develop a sound 
tern of graduate and professional 
schools that will be the equal of any 
in the country. The implications not 
only for the South but for the rest of 
the country are far-reaching. A new 
pattern has appeared in higher educa- 
tion that will have a profound influ- 
ence on colleges and universities every- 


In the last issue of "MARYLAND." 
in the article "Education of the Blind." 
by Mrs Alice C. Dwyer, B.S., R.N.. the 
caption under Mrs. Dwyer's photograph 
indicated that she had served in the 
Navy at Pearl Harbor during the 
Japanese sneak attack of 1941. 

Mrs. Dwyer advises the editor that 
the caption was incorrect in that she 
had served in the Navy at Pearl Harbor 
as Assistant Chief Nurse from 1 No- 
vember 1942 to 4 June 1944, but not 
during the attack of 1 December 1941. 

"MARYLAND" regrets the error.

A Timely Report by the Bureau of Business and Economic 
Research, College of Business and Public Administration 

IN A STUDY of the cost of living by the Bureau 
of Business and Economic Research of tin- Univer- 
sity of Maryland, it i- concluded that consumer prices 

will not decline to pit-war levels and that there is 

considerable evidence of stabilization at a high level. 
Appearing under the title "Living I Some 

Relationships," the report cover.- a historical compari- 
son, particularly of the two post-war periods; com- 
parison of the relative importance and similarity of 
changes in the important components of consumer 
costs and a summary of major factors influencing 

present tendencies. 

One section of the study indicates the historical re- 
lationship between total living costs and rentals in 59 
cities, including Baltimore and Washington. The effect 
of war controls and current review of rent increases 
provides a pattern which still is transitional to a 
peacetime relationship. However, in general, according 
to Dr. John H. Cover, Director of the Bureau, the 
question is raised as to whether the usual concept of 
the cost of living is determinant largely of the "food 
basket" cost is valid. 

One comparison of changes in consumer prices is 
illustrated in the following sentence, indicating the 

low purchasing power of current dol- 

cept for the current period of adjust- 
ment, rent would appear to be the one 
component most serviceable in estimat- 
ing the total cost of living. 

Dr. Cover 

lars: "Since the composite price of ap- 
parel rose in 1948 to more than 200 per 
cent of the 1936 price, the dollar in 
1948 was worth less than 50 cents in 
the purchase of apparel at current 

Baltimore Prices 

Current food prices in Baltimore are 
considerably higher, as a whole, than 
the average for the U. S.. while apparel 
prices and rents are slightly lower than 
the I'. S. average. Apparel prices in 
Baltimore rose in 1948 to the highest 
point in the 36-year period observed. 
but this peak was not far above the 
high point of 1919. Food reached a 
maximum composite price in 1947. 217.8 
per cent as compared with the 1918 rela- 
tive of 1 4 1 > . 4 per cent: each of these 
percentages are related to the prices 
for the period 1935-39 as 100 per cent. 
While the total cost of living as well as 
rent- and food reached low points in 
1915, apparel prices were lowest in 
1914. Prior to the war. the composite 
cost in Baltimore reached its maximum 
in 1920. rent in 1925, food in 1918, and 
apparel in 1919. 

I). C. Rents 

Of necessity, families must sacrifice 
purchases in Bome categories when one 

or two of the major components are 
relatively out of proportion. For in- 
stance, Washington, I). ('., tends to be 
the city of highest relative rentals. 
Families, therefore, reduce purchases of 
other commodities in comparison. The 
relative importance of major compo- 
nents differs widely throughout the 

l. S, As a result of this inconsistent re- 
lationship between food, apparel, house 
operation, and other costs, the rent 

factor normally appears to have the 
greatesl Bingle effect of all components 

upon variations in the total cost of 

living among Btatea, Consequently, ex- 

Prospective Changes 

In the concluding section of the re- 
port lists of apparent inflationary and 
deflationary factors are provided as an 
aid in estimating the probability of re- 
spective changes. 

"Among inflationary factors observa- 
ble today are the following: 

1. A 'full employment' policy is a basic- 
objective of the national administration. 
With the threat of a serious depression, 
heavy deficit financing of public works 
and other developments to reduce un- 
employment would result in an increase- 
in the public debt and an inflation of 
the money supply. 

2. Continued international stresses. 
and certainly military conflict would 
acutely aggravate inflation. 

•>. Present and prospective programs 

for national defense, social security, 
and public welfare will likely increase 
Federal Government expenditures. Ac- 
companied by public resistance to addi- 
tional taxation, this would require con- 
siderable borrowing. 

Government Obligations 

4. Current holdings of government ob- 
ligations are large, and their conversion 
into cash for use in the market is easy. 

6. Pressure upon state and local gov- 
ernments has developed to increase pub- 
lic expenditures through the issuance of 


li. It is probable that private debt will 

increase relative to income. 

7. Since OUT domestic dollar is not tied 
to the gold standard, the money supply 
can readily be expanded by public and 
private borrowing from the banks. 

B Success in their demands for in- 
creased income by large groups would 

-{8 V 

tend to press against the price level. 

Hither of two contrasting public 
attitudes. — a concern about the pur- 
chasing power of the dollar, or an over- 
optimism regarding prosperity, — could 
lead to the expenditure of current cash 
balances and an accelerated inflationary 

"Deflationary factors include: 

1. Mounting efficiency, through in- 
creases in productivity, resulting in 
lower co>ts per unit of production. 

2. Intensified competition and a de- 
crease in shortagt 

.'J. Willingness of individual and insti- 
tutional investors to acquire large 
holdings of government securities. 
4. As real incomes increase, a ten- 
dency to retain larger cash balance

of Graduates of the University of 
Maryland was held at the Hotel Melia 
in Ponce, Puerto Rico, September 
All Maryland graduates of the island 
were invited and invitations were also 
given to all the dentists and physicians

of the meeting was addressed by Dr.

Fixed Partial Prosthesis in the School 
of Dentistry, who presented a paper on

University's Speech Training 
Program Includes Impres- 
sive Stage, Radio Activities 

SPEAK of speech training and the 
first thing that comes to mind is 
the old days of William Jennings Bryan 
or the Lyceum lecture series. While the 
Speech Department at Maryland is 
mainly concerned with developing the 
art of speech making in the college stu- 
dent, it takes pride in the progress of 
theatre techniques and radio broadcast- 
ing, two fields that are as important 
today as the Lyceum circuit was in its 

Many alumni still remember the Foot- 
light Club productions before the war, 
but they may be saddened by the fact 
that the name was abolished in 1947, 
and the club joined forces with the 
Speech Department to form the Univer- 
sity Theatre. Now, this organization at- 
tracts more student help than any other 
extracurricular activity on the campus. 
Courses In All Fields 

With the great increase in theatre- 
minded students, the department, head- 
ed by Dr. Ray Ehrensberger in the Col- 
lege of Arts and Sciences, has been able 
to offer courses related to all fields of 
the stage production. Included in the 
speech curriculum now are such sub- 
jects as acting, stagecraft, theatre his- 
tory, make-up, costuming, scene design, 
play direction and production. Students 
taking these subjects learn the theory 
in the classroom, but get their greatest 
value out of applying what they learn 
in actual production of major and ex- 
perimental plays presented by the Uni- 
versity Theatre. Work on these plays, 

however, is purely voluntary, and none 
of the drama courses requires partici- 
pation in any of the year's productions. 
All shows are financed and produced by 
students for campus audiences with the 
help of trained faculty members. 

Modern Set-Up 

This student-faculty set-up has made 
present day productions a far cry from 
those of pre-war days. Improvement is 
evidenced by the attraction of Washing- 
ton and Baltimore drama critics, sell- 
out houses and extra performances by 
student demand. 

A well-rounded program is planned 
at the beginning of each school year by 
the Theatre Staff, a board made up of 
student officers and faculty. The season 
usually includes classic, period and mod- 


Under Dr. Ray Ehrensberger. pictured 
above. Head of the Department of Speech, 
College of Arts and Sciences, dramatics and 
radio have made great progress in recent 

ern plays, ranging from farce to 
tragedy. Each play is selected with its 
cultural value in mind. This gives the 
campus theatre-goer a chance to see 
plays he would not ordinarily see even 
by traveling to New York. 

Good Season 

The 1948-49 season opened with 
Thornton Wilder's "Our Town," the play 
that caused a mild sensation on Broad- 
way because of its lack of scenery. It 
was produced here in the same manner 
and gave some twenty young thespians 
a chance to display their acting ability. 
Robert Sherwood's philosophical melo- 
drama, "The Petrified Forest," followed 
as the second major production. It gave 
the student a taste of the wanderlust 
philosophy which grew out of the de- 
pression days. In its third play the Uni- 
versity Theatre surmounted the lack of 
stage space in an ambitious production 
of G. B. Shaw's "Androcles and the

fashion, and it was just that. Audiences

Beside the four major shows, the Uni- 
versity Theatre presented two experi- 
mental plays during the year for in- 
vited audiences. "The Man Who Would 
Be Sick," an adaptation of Moliere's 
"The Imaginary Invalid." and Jean 

Anouilh's version of the Greek tragedy.

experimental plays is to develop new

the big plays.

and the stage lighting equipment hs 
been greatly improved. Plans to rem

the department moved its headquarters 
into the new classroom building, it ac 
quired two newly equipped Btudios, a 
control room and a radio workshop. 
These rooms serve classes in radio pro- 
duction, radio workshop, radio speech, 

announcing, acting and writing. 

Students enrolled in these classes gel 

experience in making studio broadcasts 
and transcriptions. Alter receiving this 
training, they are qualified to start work 
in most any type of commercial broad- 
casting. Several students have an oppor- 
tunity to take part-time jobs with local 
stations while still in training. Public 
address announcers for home football 
games are also selected from these 

Visit New York 

The courses are climaxed in the 
spring- by a trip to New York where 
students have a chance to witness pro- 
fessional production of nation-wide 
broadcasts. Here they have a chance to 
discuss various phases of the business 
with experienced technicians. 

Because the university is located in 
the Washington metropolitan area, it 
is not justifiable to establish a Univer- 
sity station. 

Radio and dramatics have made great 
progress in recent years under Dr. 
Ehrensberger, w r ho became head of the 
department in 1939. He is a man who 
believes in the cultural development of 
the college student and has built his de- 
partment on that ground. The depart- 
ment is still growing, and the growth 
will not end until every facility in the 
field of speech can be offered Maryland 
students. Already the Speech Depart- 
ment is considered one of the best in 
the East. 


The University alumni living in the 
Baltimore area met on September 20 to 
launch an alumni Club. Dr. Frank Black 
'04 Pharmacy has been chosen President 
of the group. 

More than two hundred fifty attended 
the initial rally held at the Alcazar and 
featuring F. Murray Benson '23 Law as 
Master of Ceremonies. Lee R. Penning- 
ton '15 Engineering, Administrative 
Assistant to Director J. Edgar Hoover 
of the F. B. L, was the featured speaker. 
He reviewed the workings of the F. B. I. 
and stressed the importance of alumni 
interest in eliminating subversive ele- 
ments in this country. Mr. Pennington 
is responsible for all F. B. I. activities 
relating to bank robbery, forgery, kid- 
napping, and accounting. Both his son 
and father graduated from the Uni- 

Dr. Arthur I. Bell, President of the 
University Alumni Association and 
Third Vice-President of the Baltimore 
Club, keynoted the meeting and em- 
phasized the importance of the forma- 
tion of an alumni club. In view of the 
large concentration of former students 
in the area. He said, "Without excep- 
tion, those asked to participate in the 
formation of a Club gave the idea their 
whole-hearted support. All of us have 
come to realize the terrific import of 
such an organization in furthering the 
University of Maryland and in develop-

ing a closer relationship among all of 
us holding degrees from this institution. 
With the welfare of the state uppermost 
in our minds, we as civic minded citizens 
must recognize the importance of our 
University to our state and to those who 
live within its boundaries. With the wel- 
fare of the state uppermost in our 
minds, therefore, and with a deep in- 
terest in the University of Maryland we 
set our sights on a great future for the 
University and for our alumni club." 

Mr. Benson introduced Dr. Black with 
this comment, "Our object is to get 
together beauty and brawn — the output 
of the University of Maryland." 

Dr. Black expressed appreciation to 
the many who have served as members 
of the Program, Publicity, Promotion 
and other Committees. He introduced 
members of the Membership Committee 
who in turn obtained a number of char- 
ter memberships from those present. Dr. 
Black urged alumni to take their cue 
from the more than one hundred who 
had been initially interested in the for- 
mation of the Club. He pointed to the 
time and energy required to assure the 
success of the Club on an extensive 
scale. He outlined the meeting plans for 
the ensuing year. The next function is 
scheduled for November 15 at the Alca- 
zar, Cathedral and Madison Sts., in Bal- 
timore. It will commence at 8:00 P. M. 
and will feature a talk by Head Coach 
Jim Tatum and movies of the Maryland- 
Michigan State game. Brooks Bradley 
'37 Arts and Sciences, is Chairman of 
the affair. 

Dean J. Ben Robinson of the Dental 
School and a member of the Class of 
1914 reviewed the past history of the 
University and asked that alumni con- 
tinue the interest in their School they 
had shown as students. He said, "The 
University has made great progress in 
the last twenty-nine years. It is the 
youngest of the land-grant colleges and 


its creation was unique. It is a collection 
of fine Colleges with traditions brought 
together to form an unexcelled institu- 
tion of learning. No University has 
progressed more rapidly or has more to 
offer than Maryland."

Maryland In German] 

The University of Maryland opened 
five education centers in Germany to 
give the occupation personnel an op- 
portunity to obtain two years of college 


It will be the first time in Germany 
that resident college credits will he 
offered to those doing classroom work 
under the Army and Air Force educa- 
tion program. 

Arrangements for these centers, to 
be established in schools already oper- 
ated by the Army and Air Force, were 
made in a -i\tecn-day survey, under- 
taken at the requesl of the Army, by 
Dr. George -1. Kabat, Dean of the Col- 
lege of Special and Continuation 
Studio of the University of Maryland. 

The center- in Nuernberg, Frankfurt 
and Wiesbaden are staffed by seven Uni- 
versity of Maryland professors. They 
will teach history, sociology, political 
science and public speaking. 

When not teaching, Doctor Kabat 
said, these professors would he free to 

do personal research or study at near- 
by German university 

l i,. courses began October 31. 

The school terms will last eight weeks 
and the three-hour classes will he held 
in off-duty hours. 

The professors will rotate in the edu- 
cational center-. Fach eiyht-wcek term 

will count for three semester boui 


The students will pay 25 per cent of 
the fee and the Coveriiment the re- 
mainder. The fees are $24 for three 
semester hours. 

These college experimental cent 

are being established because the Army 

and Aii Force now are requiring a 

higher educational standard -at least 
two years of college' education — for 
their officers. 

In addition to officers, both regular 
and reserve, those eligible to take these 
voluntary courses are enlisted men. 
airmen, American civilians and their 

Doctor Kabat revealed that when this 
new plan in college education was pre- 
sented to Lieut. Cen. Clarence R. 
Huebner, deputy commander in chief in 
Europe, he asked three questions: 

"How will it operate? Will it work? 
How much will it cost?" 

When the facts were explained, he 

"What are we waiting for? Let's get 
the project started." 

In his survey. Dr. Kabat took part in 
fifteen conferences and spoke at several 
army and air force information and 
education meetings. 

He indicated there would be a con- 
nection between the new program and 
the University of Maryland foreign 
study centers for graduate students at 
Paris, Zurich and Munich. 

These centers, operated by the Uni- 
versity's Language Department, will 
assist the seven professors by selecting 
qualified professors to teach German at 
the new army education centers. 

The seven professors, Drs. Verne E. 
Chatelain. Lyle Mayer, Bruce L. Melvin, 
Martin W. Moser, David S. Sparks. 
Phyllis Bates Sparks, and Warren L. 
Strausbaugh, were flown to Germany 
from Westover (Mass.) Air Base. They 
will rotate their classes among the six 
educational centers. 

The new school will be known as the 
University of Maryland Kuropean Com- 
mand College of Special and Continua- 
tion Studies.

ESTABLISHMENT of a graduate 
program for instruction and re- 
search in the physical and biological 
Bciences at the Army Chemical Center, 
Fdgewood. Maryland, was announced 
jointly by Commanding General E. F. 
Bullene and the University of Mary- 
land's President, Dr. II. C. Byrd. 

The new program will offer profes- 
sional employees high-level graduate 
training, utilizing the laboratories and 
pilot plant equipment of the Medical 
Division and Technical Command — and 
will draw on the University of Mary- 
land, other universities, and experi- 
enced university instructors now on the 
scientific staffs of the Chemical Corps 
for teaching. 

The University of Maryland and the 
Chemical Corps, will supervise and con- 
duct graduate level instruction. The 
staff of instructors will be drawn from 
graduate faculties of the University of 
Maryland and other accredited univer- 
sities, as well as from qualified mem- 
bers of the Chemical Corps. The super- 
visors from Maryland will correlate in- 
struction with that offered elsewhere 
by the university, prepare and conduct 
examinations, and grant advanced de- 

Referring to the program, General 
Bullene said. "Development of the 
scientific ability of the younger men so 
that they may grow professionally and 
advance to positions of higher respon- 
sibility, and provision for the older men 
of opportunities to participate in basic 
research and to publish their work, is 
vital to continued success of the re- 
search and development program of the 
Chemical Corps." 

"The University of Maryland wel- 
comes this opportunity to extend its 
service in graduate instruction and re- 
search to another national defense 
agency," said President H. C. Byrd of 
Maryland. "It is proud to work with 
the Chemical Corps, knowing that this 
association will not only contribute di- 
rectly and specifically to the State and 
Nation, but that it will also stimulate 
and enrich other graduate instruction 
and research in the physical and bio- 
logical sciences under the university's 
care. The University of Maryland 
recognizes that its public character and 
geographical location provide it with 
unparalleled opportunities for educa- 
tional and research service, and it pro- 
- to do all that it can to live up to 
the responsibilities these opportunities 

Courses in physical and organic 
chemistry, biochemistry, mathematics, 

chemical engineering, and phyaiology, 
will initiate during the fall semester 
beginning in September. 

Students may work toward tin- de- 
gree of Blaster of Science or Doctor <>t" 

Philosophy, or may participate in the 

program without seeking a degree. 
Present plans allow qualified students 

approximately eight hours of class and 
laboratory instruction per week. Of this 
time not mote than four hours will be 
within the normal working time. Pro- 
visions will he made for keeping: certain 
laboratories and libraries open evenings 
and Saturdays to permit out-of-hours 
research and study. 

Attraction of the more promising re- 
cent graduates to the government serv- 
ice and encouragement of research in 
the basic physical sciences, has resulted 
from graduate programs that have been 
established for some time in the Na- 
tional Bureau of Standards; the De- 
partment of Agriculture; the Naval 
Research organizations such as the 
N'aval Research Laboratory, and the 
Naval Ordnance Laboratory, and the 
David Taylor Model Basin; and the 
Ordnance Dept. and the Signal Corps 
of the U. S. Army; and the U. S. Air 
Force. The University of Maryland has 
pioneered in the training of government 
scientists and was the first institution 
to offer graduate courses at the Naval 
Research Laboratory, and now offers 
an extensive graduate program in co- 
operation with this and other Navy, 
Army, and Air Force research organi- 
zations in Washington. 

Ground work for the Chemical Center 
Graduate program was laid in discus- 
sions extending over the past several 
years, culminating in the First Chem- 
ical Corps Conference on Scientific Per- 
sonnel during October 1948, in which 
the Chief, Research and Development 
Group, General Staff; the Department 
of the Army Director of Personnel; the 
Chief, Chemical Corps, representatives 
of the U. S. Civil Service and represen- 
tatives of all technical branches of the 
Chemical Corps participated. The 
Graduate program at the Chemical 
Center implements some of the policies 
formulated by the conference. On be- 
half of the University, the conduct of 
the negotiations was assigned to Dr. 
Wilbert J. Huff, Chairman of the Di- 
vision of Physical Science and Profes- 
sor of Chemical Engineering by Presi- 
dent Byrd. 

The Technical Command and Medical 
Division of the Chemical Corps between 
them employ about 500 scientists and 
engineers with training at least equiva- 
lent to Bachelor's and Master's degrees 
at recognized universities, and more 
than fifty with a Ph.D. or M.D. De- 
gree. More than twenty members of the 
staff have taught chemical engineering, 
or medical subjects in universities and 
a large number contribute regularly to 
scientific literature. 

The two research and development 
groups provide an excellent technical 
library. The laboratories and the at- 
tendant scientific and engineering 
equipment are equal to those found in 
the best universities and medical

In the interim, between I 

the meetings of the Committee 

on Constitution for I'PADI continued. 

meeting of the official delegates of 

all the countries represented, the Con- 
stitution for UPADI was unanimously 
adopted. Of the 22 countries in the 
Western Hemisphere invited to the 
I'PADI meetings and to the Cong 
the following IT sent delegates: Argen- 
tina, Brazil. Canada, Chile, Colombia, 
Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El 
Salvador. Guatemala, Mexico. Nicara- 
gua, Paraguay. Peru, United States. 
Uruguay, and Venezuela. It was de- 
cided that when the national engineer- 
ing societies of 15 nations have accepted 
the UPADI Constitution, the organiza- 
tion would be considered formed, and 
that thereafter an organization meeting 
would be held in Havana, Cuba, pro- 
vided that country had accepted mem- 
bership in the organization. 

Throughout the discussions for the 
founding of UPADI. the United States 
delegation acted as observers and were 
available to advise and to express opin- 
ions regarding the probable attitude of 
the engineering profession in the L'nited 
States with reference to each of the 
provisions of the proposed Constitution. 
The delegate from Canada and those 
from Venezuela also acted as obser- 

The hope was expressed by all the 
mbled delegates that the United 
States engineers would find the Consti- 
tution of UPADI acceptable and that 
they would join that organization at an 
early date. 

It is estimated that the potential 
membership of UPADI from its possible 

constituent organizations is 108,000 pro- 
fessional engineers, consisting of about 
12,000 now in USA1. 90,000 represented 

bj Engineers Joint Council, and 0,000 in 

the other countries of the hemisphere, 

including Canada. 

The First Pan American Engineering 

Congress, officially authorized and spon- 
sored by the Government of Brazil, was 
attended by 800 engineers, officials, and 
guests, representing nearly all the coun- 
tries of the Western Hemisphere. Of the 
registered engineers 540 were Brazil- 
ians. The next three largest registra- 
tions were 74 from Argentina. 40 from 
the United States and 36 from Uruguay, 
all exclusive of their families. Approxi- 
mately 350 papers were represented of 
which more than 100 were from United 
States engineers. The large number of 
papers from the United States is due 
largely to the excellent work in develop- 
ing the interest of North America en- 
gineers done by L. J. Hughlett of the 
Committee for U. S. Participation in 
the Congress. The official United States 
delegation consisted of the following 17 
members of the five constituent societies 
of Engineers Joint Council who were in 
attendance at the Congress:

Dean Steinberg served as Chairman 
of the United States delegation and 
Dean W. H. Carson of the University of 
Oklahoma was Vice Chairman. 

The program of the Congress was 
unusually comprehensive in scope and 
dealt with all the major branches of 
Engineering. The presiding officer was 
Engineer F. Saturnino de Brito Filho 
who did an excellent job in what were, 
at times, difficult situations. The official 
languages of the Congress were Eng- 
lish, French, Portuguese, and Spanish. 
Translations were made at meetings as 
needed and requested by the delegates. 
It is interesting to note that of the 350 
papers presented, more than a third 
were in English, somewhat less than a 
third in Portuguese, a smaller number 
in Spanish and only a few in French. 

Each paper presented to the Congress 
was referred to one of nine Commissions 
dealing with the various branches of 
Engineering into which the Agenda 
were divided. These Commissions were 
as follows: 1st, Transportation and 
Communications; 2nd, Construction; 
3rd, Power; 4th, Urban and Rural En- 
gineering; 5th, Sanitary Engineering; 
6th, Industrial Engineering; 7th, Min-

town News said : 

"It must bo a very pleasing surprise 
to smell flowers while you can enjoy 
their fragrance while rusticating on 
this planet. Here's a bunch that Charlie 
B. Ward presented to Dr. Byrd: 'Dr. 
H. C. Byrd, president of the University 
of Maryland, gives credit to Governor 
Lane for the wonderful growth of that 
splendid institution. President Byrd is 
a modest man. The people of the Free 
State know to whom credit is due; the 
University's development into a first 
rate school is due to the powerful 
driving force ami tremendous energy of 
Dr. Byrd. 

"'If Maryland is to take its place in 
the Union as a state of the first rank, 
our people should draft Dr. Byrd for 
Governor. Without any disparagement 
of Governor Lane and the other estima- 
ble gentlemen whoso names have been 
suggested as gubernatorial candidates. 
President Byrd stands out as a moun- 
tain peak among little hills. He would 
give the Free State a lift, an impetus, 
a force that would make Maryland the 
envy of our sister states. How about a 
Byrd-for-Governor draft?' " 


Dr. H. C. Byrd, president of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, delivered the main 
address at the formal dedication of the 
Silver Spring Lodge, Loyal Order of 
Moose's new home at 926 Wayne avenue. 
He spoke at the Silver Spring Armory. 

Dr. Byrd is a member of the Board of 
Governors of "Mooseheart," well known 
"Child City" of the Moose Lodges at 
Mooseheart, 111. 

Praise of the Loyal Order of Moose 
for its work in behalf of the youth of 
this country was the keynote of Dr. 
Byrd's address. 

He said, "There's something in the 
Moose that's akin to religion," as he 
pointed to their efforts toward educat- 
ing and making responsible citizens of 
thousands of boys and girls who have 
lost their fathers. 

In order that children may have the 
advantage of becoming good citizens 
and living up to the things for which 
this nation stands. He urged his audi- 
ence to see that their objectives included 
belief in God, betterment of home life 
and loyalty to their country.

AN \i:i [I IK m the I 
of "Coronet," titled "What's Be-

Madelyn Carlisle, refers in con- 
siderable detail to the research efforts 
of Dr. H. J. Figge, faculty member of 
the University <>f Maryland School of 

Part- of the article are quoted below: 

"Every minute of the day, mysterious 
rays from Borne remote corner of Bpace, 
ibly the stars, come hurtling 
through the atmosphere to bombard the 
earth with showers of particles. You 
feel, hoar or see them, but at this 
v.ry moment they are hammering at 
your body. In the time it takes you to 
read this paragraph, you will be hit by than 200 particles, with energies 
equivalent to billions of electron volts. 

•What are these rays? Where do they 
come from? What do they do to you? 
For nearly half a century, scientists all 
over the world have been seeking an- 
swers to these baffling questions. Driven 
by the feeling that we stand on the 
threshold of breath-taking discoveries, 
they have a growing conviction that in 
the cosmic ray they may find the an- 
swers to some of the most fundamental 
mysteries of the universe. 

"Significant are the experiments of 
Dr. H. J. Figge and his associates in 
Baltimore. Like most cancer research- 
ers. Figge began his thinking with the 
fact that cancer is somehow related to 
the life process. Something strange hap- 
pens to normal, living cells; they keep 
on living but become killer cells that 
eventually destroy their host. What 
causes the change ? 

"Suppose the existence of certain 
cancer-causing chemicals — chemicals 
which would lie harmless and inert in 
most bodies most of the time. And then 
Buppose they were activated by some 
kind of ray and thus given a deadly 

"Figge found minute quantities of 
chemicals which might be suspected. In 
laboratory tots, they are found in the 
bodies of animals which readily suc- 
cumb to cancer. What makes these 
usually harmless chemicals become ac- 

"It -truck Dr. Figge that cosmic ray- 
could be the answer. He knew, of course. 
that the amount of radiation actually 
hitting human beings was not very 
it. Hut what if you totaled all the 
COsmic-ray radiation over a lifetime, or 

considered the cumulative effect of such 
radiation on generation after genera- 
"Figge decided to raise one set of 

mice in an atmosphere free of lays, an- 
other >et in a normally charged atmos- 
phere. Hut how could a researcher create 

an atmosphei I rays ? Phys 

told Figge lie would either have to retire 

Tim feet underground, or build a labora- 

.vith a lead io"i 49 feet thick. 

"Thereupon, the experimenter decided 

other way to accomplish 

the same objective. He would step up

lead plates a quarter-inch thick - not to 
protect the mice but to caUf

Something amazing had taken 
place. Some of the mice in a normal at- 
mosphere had cancer — 33 per cent of 
them. This was not remarkable, how- 
ever, because the powerful chemical ad- 
ministered was certain to cause cancer 
in all the mice eventually. What was re- 
markable was the fact that, in ten 
weeks, 75 per cent of the mice exposed 
to rays had cancer. In one cage, where 
the cosmic showers had been intensified 
by the use of lead plates, 91 per cent

"The Figge experiments are just one 
more chapter in the story of cosmic-ray 
exploration, which began at the turn of

that our atmosphere possesses to a 
slight extent the power to conduct elec- 
tricity. This meant that it must contain 
broken atoms, or, in other words, atoms 
whose positively and negatively charged 
component parts had become separated. 
What was causin<r the separation? 
Could it be the result of some kind of 
radiation ?"

In July. 1SSS he received his certifi- 
cate as druggist and opened a drug 
-tore in Dauphin. Later he took up 
the practice of medicine after his 
brother's death in 1890. 

Years of hard work, filling his own 
prescriptions, working almost day and 
night to comfort those in dist: 
traveling through snow-storms, was the 
routine of Dr. Coble. 


Dr. Coble delivered nearly 4,000 
babies, the largest one weighing 14 lbs. 
and the tiniest one, two and one-half 

IB- mixed most of his own medicines, 
and still does. People come from a 
radius of fifty miles, and medicine is 
often sent to Chicago and Florida. 

Dr. Coble has been a railroad sur-

For years he was a great baseball 
fan, taking in all the games played by 
the home team of the Dauphin-Perry

Dr. Coble is a member of the Perry- 
Lodge, No. 458, F.&A.M. Marysville. 
which he joined in 1890. He poled a 
boat across the river to these early- 
lodge meetings. He is a member of the 
Harrisburg Consistory and the Zembo 
Shrine of Harrisburg. 

He was a delegate to the Republican 
State Convention in 1891, and also 
served as school director for a period 
of thirty-one years. 

Dr. Coble holds membership in the 
Penn. State and Dauphin Co. Medical 
Societies, a member of the Paxton 
Lodge, No. 621. 

He was born July 6, 1859, which 
makes him over 90 years old. Brother.

never had any children. He lived in 
Dauphin on the same street since 1882. 

At Walter Reed 

The University of Maryland pre- 
two college courses at the Army Med-

pital this fall for military personnel 
with classes twice weekly for a period 
of 15 weeks. 

The courses are in Public Speak 
and Psychology. 

Those successfully completing either 
or both of the courses will be given full 
credit from the University. 

The post's Troop Information and 
Education funds will be used to pay 
75'. of the tuition for officers and en- 
listed personnel interested in attending 
the classes. 

Heads Psychiatry 

Dr. Jacob Ellis Finesinger returned 
to Baltimore to head the department of 
psychiatry at the University of Mary- 
land's School of Medicine. 

He will make periodic visits from 
Boston where he had been on the staff of 
the Massachusetts General Hospital 
since l'.L'i.S, shortly after the psychiatric 
department was established there. 

In January, he will assume full-time 

Dr. Finesinger is engaged in work on 
series of motion pictures of actual 
therapeutic sessions for the Veterans 
Administration and for the Army. 

During the war he conducted studies 
on aviators, giving psychological and 
physiological tests to determine who 
would make a good pilot and who 


Farther studies included experiments

moved to the University of Maryland 
and continued, he said.

he said, "that some psychosomatic 
troubles (physical illnesses in which 
emotions play a large part) may be due 
to some difficulty in handling oxygen

opportunities at the University of 

"Everything I've asked for has been 
done," he said.

Thos. C. Wilder. Maryland. M.D. '41, 
was recently awarded the degree of 
Master of Science in Surgery at the 
University of Minnesota. 


When classes were resumed at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland this semester. Lewis W. 
Cromwell, 69, veteran chief electrician at the 
College Park campus, pictured above with 
student Pat Keck, '19, was on hand to greet 
new students for his 22d year. 

It also was his last time. 

Mr. Cromwell, a familiar "landmark" at 
the University since August, 1928, is to retire 
November 1. 

When he does, the University will lose one 
of its most colorful characters. For to stu- 
dents and alumni, Mr. Cromwell is as well 
known as Tesludo, the bronze terrapin. 

Wearing his familiar overalls and a pair of 
"sneakers," Mr. Cromwell looked over some 
of the approximately 10,000 students who at- 
tended classes for the first time this year. 

Students who know Mr. Cromwell refer to 
him affectionately as "Short Circuit." This 
stems from his trouble-shooter job. 

Mr. Cromwell knows all the answers when 
it comes to electrical engineering. He holds 
two degrees from Purdue University — a 
Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Elec- 
trical Engineering. 

Mr. Cromwell also is known for his knowl- 
edge of various languages. He can speak six 
of them and knows "words and phrases" in 
another 15 or 20. 

Much of his time at the University, where 
he lives, is spent in the campus library. Here 
he browses through books, picking his fa- 
vorites and taking them to his room. 

He has lived on the campus for 20 years 
since the death of his wife. His present quar- 
ters are in Sylvester Hall. 

Mr. Cromwell was born October 4, 1879, in 
Albany, Ga. When he retires, he wants to 
"travel around the world" and then settle 
down in Havana. Cuba was one of five places 
where he worked before coming to the Uni- 
versity. The others were Venezuela, Colom- 
bia, Peru and India. 

"When I leave, I certainly intend to visit 
Egypt, Palestine, Hawaii, Tahiti and possibly 
Alaska, before settling down," he declared. 

"But I'll miss this place," he added. 

This year he saw about the same number 
of students as were present last year. 

Just about all of those at College Park will 
know Mr. Cromwell or will have seen him 
before he retires. 

"You can't miss him," a youthful under- 
graduate explained.

The Alumnae of the School <>i Dentistrj 

By Theresa A. Edwardi and 
Gardner P. H. Foley 

»| RING the iii -t fifty yeai 
formal dental education, dating 
from the founding of the Baltimore 
College of Dental Surgery in L840, the 
dental colleges and the dental organi- 
sations in genera] were strongly op- 
posed to the entrance of women to the 

profession. Before L866 a few women 

had practiced dentistry in this country 

without benefil of degrees, but it was 

not till that year that Lucy Hobbs 
Taylor, a graduate of the Ohio College 
of Dental Surgery, became the first 
woman in the world to receive the den- 
tal degree. The second woman to re- 
ceive the D.D.S. degree and the first 
woman to complete the two-year course 
was Henrietta Hirschfield of Germany, 
a graduate of the Pennsylvania College 
of Dental Surgery in 1869. 

In the early 1870's the faculty of the 
Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, 
under the leadership of Dean Ferdinand 
J. S. Gorgas, adopted a liberal attitude 
towards the acceptance of women stu- 
dents. The experience of the oldest 
dental college in graduating six women 
during the period 187:5-1878 had an im- 
portant effect on the development of 
careers in dentistry for women. 

There have been thirty-four women 
graduates from the dental schools in 
Baltimore: fourteen from the Baltimore 
College of Dental Surgery; nine from 
the Dental Department of the Univer- 
sity of .Maryland; and eleven from the 
Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, 
Dental School, University of Maryland. 
Only two foreign countries are repre- 
sented in the geographical distribution 
of these graduates: Germany with nine 
and China with two. This country lias 
representatives from nine states, one 
territory and the District; Maryland 5, 

Puerto Rico 4, Connecticut :'>, North 
Carolina :i, Pennsylvania 2, Florida 1, 
Delaware I, Virginia 1, New York 1. 
West Virginia L, and the District of 
Columbia 1. 

Kmii.K FOEKING (1ST.'.)- The fifth 
woman to receive a dental degree and 
the first woman to he graduated from 
the Baltimore College of Dental Sur- 
gery was Dr. Foeking of Danzig, 
Prussia. She deserves recognition also 

as tlie first woman to receive a dental 

or medical degree from a Maryland 

school. She conformed to all the rules 
and regulations of the College and 
made an excellent impression on the 
faculty and her fellow students by her 
proficiency and earnest application. She 
graduated with high honors. Her senior 
thesis, "Is Woman Adapted to the Den- 
tal Profession?", was published in the 

lo. Foeking practiced very successfully 
in Berlin. 

Louise i \< obi (1874) Like her 
predecessor, Dr. Jacobi was from Ger- 
many. She also graduated with hitfh 

honors and thus gave added support to 
the justification of the school's liberal 
policy towards women students. Dr. 
Jacobi practiced in Berlin in partner- 
ship with her aunt. Dr. Hem 
Hn BChfield. 

Elsie Von Heyden (1876) No in- 
formation is available concerning Dr.

becoming grace." 
Elvira Castneb (1878)— The fifth 

woman graduate of the Baltimore Col- 
lege of Dental Surgery also came from 

Adolfine Peterson (1878) — The 
fact that the first six women graduates 
from the Baltimore College of Dental 
Surgery were Germans reflects the 
European reputation of the College and 
also the superior qualities of the Ger- 
man women of that period. 

Eva E. SEMON (1899)— After the 
graduation of the two German women 
in 1878 the College changed its policy 
and decided not to matriculate any 
more women students. The maintenance 
of this regulation over many years ac- 
counts for the interval of twenty-one 
years between the sixth and seventh 
alumnae. Dr. Semon, of Maryland, was 
the first woman from the United States 
to receive a degree from the Baltimore 
College of Dental Surgery. 

E. R. Brush (1901)— Dr. Brush, of 
Florida, was one of two women to 
graduate in the Class of 1901. 

C. c. Walker (1901)— Dr. Walker.

as a contributor to the annual. 

Mary Parker Bosley (1903)— Dr. 
Bosley was from Maryland. 

Sarah S. Ackerman (1904) — The 
first foreign alumna to be graduated 
since 1878. Dr. Ackorman returned to 
Germany to practice her profession. 

Mary A. Bane (1909)— Highly re- 
garded by her classmates Dr. Bane, of 
Connecticut, was the first New England 
woman to graduate from the Baltimore 
College of Dental Surgery.

Charles B. Stouffer, D.D.S. 

Dr. C. B. Stouffer, D.D.S. . Maryland. 
'92, dean of Adams county (Pennsyl- 
vania) dentists, recently celebrated his 
84th birthday in the usual fashion — 
by putting in a full day's work. 

Oldest active dentist in the county, he 
also holds the Gettysburg, Pa. record 
for having been in business in the same 
location, with the business still con- 
ducted by the original owner, for the 
longest number of years, fifty-seven. 

When he set up practice in 1892, he 
rented the two-room office and has 
been in the same location ever since. 

Not only that— hut the first patient 
who walked in the office "i" years ago 
is still going to Dr. Stouffer for treat- 

In 57 years Dr. Stouffer has fre- 
quently treated four generations of 

-122 - 

His only concession to the years was 
made four years ago when he aban- 
doned extractions. Now he concentrates 
on fillings and other dental work leav- 
ing the pulling and tugging to younger 
denti ■ 

When he started in practice most 
people BOUght to preserve a tooth as 
long as possible, as one of Doctor 
Stouffer's long-time patients recalls. 
"Then most teeth were pulled without 
any anesthetic, and it hurt far less to 
have teeth filled than it did to have 
them pulled." 

"Lau^hin^ gas," a general anesthetic, 
and cocaine, placed on the gums, or in- 
jected by hypodermic, were among the 
earlier anesthetics used by dentists, 
but none of them were as successful as 
the types in use today. 

As a matter of fact, Doctor Stouffer 
has sometimes, not for publication, 
argued that the modern anesthetics are 
so successful that they lead to unneces- 
sary destruction of teeth. He has, on 
occasion, pointed out that sometimes a 
tooth could be saved for more years of 
use, but a patient, because pulling a 
tooth is so relatively painless, will in- 
sist on having the tooth pulled. 

Samuel H. Milford. '99 

A quiet, diminutive silver-haired man 
passed his eighty-fifth birthday, is still 
an active dentist at Poolesville, Mont- 
gomery County, Md. 

A native of the town, Dr. Samuel B. 
Milford, University of Maryland School 
of Dentistry, '99, began practice just a 
half century ago, undaunted by a forced 
delay of 11 years, during which he 
labored to help pay off a family mort- 
gage. Today he proudly numbers his 
patients and friends, not by years, but 
by generations. 

Dr. Milford's rather inconspicuous 
little "shingle" hangs in front of his 
modest home across the street from the 
Poolesville bank. His office occupies a 
large front room on the street level, 
adjoining his living room. 

Dr. Milford, the last of his immediate 
family, lives alone. He affects no frills 
or furbelows, frequently works in his 
shirt sleeves and dons the customary 
white coat only when occasion demands. 

He likes to do his own housekeeping. 
His particular hobbies are his garden 
and chickens. Unusually active and in 
good health, Dr. Milford has no inten- 
tion of retiring as long as he can be of 
service to the residents of this section 
of Montgomery County.

Stanley Day Honored 

County Agent Stanley E. Day was 
presented with a Distinguished Service 
Award at the National County Agent 
Association meeting in Denver, Colo. 
Mr. and Mrs. Day were present at the 
national meeting where the award was 

Mr. Day was nominated by the Mary- 
land Association of County Agents. 
Basis for the award is distinguished 
service in the field of agricultural ex- 
tension work for an extended period of 
time. Similar awards were presented 

tonight to agents representing many 

other states in the country. 

Mr. Day is a native of Baltimore 
County. He graduated from Maryland 
in 1916. After a year and one-half at 
Winterthur Farms in Delaware, he be- 
came associated with the Maryland Ex- 
tension Service as an assistant 4-H Club 
leader. He was responsible for club work 
in the five counties on the lower Eastern 
Shore — Somerset. Worcester, Wicomico, 
Dorchester, and Talbot. After two and 

_'4 - 

one-half years, he went to Washington 
County, Maryland as county agent. He 
left in the fall of V.I22 and worked for 
5 years in private employment before 
moving to Anne Arundel County as 
county agricultural agent in 1927. 

In a statement describing Mr. Day's 
service, the state association pointed 
out, "Perhaps the most fundamental 
change which has occurred in the 22 
since Mr. Day arrived in Annap- 
olis has been the diversification of farm- 
ing — livestock, dairying, and vegetable 
crops have all increased in importance. 
This is a better balance than the single 
crop tobacco farming and is doing much 
to maintain the farm economy. One of 
the big problems was to help farmers 
provide buildings and facilities which 
would meet the milk market require- 
ments. Tobacco farms made poorly- 
equipped dairy farms, he discovered and 
the handicap was serious. However. 
dairy barns now dot the landscape in 
rolling Anne Arundel county and high 
quality milk is produced as well as high 
quality tobacco on many farms. Fine 
livestock is also an important enter) 
now and farmers from that county hold 
their own in state and regional shows."

•Illustration, 10K, 109" 

IN LINK with its expanding pro- 
grams of instructions in this field, a 
full-yeai course in commercial art is 
being offered this year by the Fine Arts 

Department of the College Of Arts and 

Sciences. Known as "Illustration 108, 
109," the course is designed to acquaint 
students with practical commercial tech- 
niques and their application to the illus- 
tration and layout of books, pamphlets, 

magazines, newspapers, and posters. 
Various techniques of the graphic arts 
— such as block printing, lithography 

and etching will be demonstrated, with 
particular emphasis on the methods and 
studio short-cuts which are used by 
contemporary artists in this field. Ac- 
cording to Colonel James P. Wharton, 
head of the Fine Arts Department, this 
course should be of particular interest 
and help to students who intend to do 
free-lance work or to become commer- 
cial artists in an advertising agency. 

The new curriculum in commercial 
art is under the personal supervision of 
Colonel Wharton, who has had many 
years of experience in this field. To 
assist him in teaching these classes, he 
has obtained the services of Mr. Henry 
J. Soulen as part-time instructor of 
illustration. A former illustrator for the 
Hearst Publishing Company, Mr. Soulen 
is well-known today for his illustrations 
which have appeared in various national 

Another addition to the teaching staff 
this year is Mrs. M. Elizabeth Stites, 
who is serving as part-time instructor in 
art history. Mrs. Stites, who holds a 
degree in architecture from New York 
University, is the wife of Dr. Raymond 
Stites. Director of the Educational Di- 
vision at the National Art Gallery. 

Summer Art Classes 
The University's Summer Art Classes, 
initiated in 1!»4S by Associate Professor 
Maurice R. Siegler, were expanded and 
enlarged during the past summer. This 
six-weeks art school is held annually at 
Camp Ritchie, near Cascade, high in the 
beautiful Blue Ridge Summit of Mary- 
land. It is designed to meet the needs of 
a wide variety of subject-matter in a 
setting that will act as a stimulus and 
challenge to the artist. The location is 
ideal and provides a variety of forms 
and subject matter of the many different 
aspects of nature, including mountains, 
lakes, fields, trees, and farms. 

The summer art classes are open to 
anyone interested in creative painting 

or in working for a degree in the Fine 

Arts. Living accommodations at Camp 
Ritchie were especially comfortable dur- 
ing the past summer. Women students 

enjoyed private rooms in the rustic, pic- 
turesque officer's club bouse, which was 
turned over to the Art School during the 
six weeks' session. Men students were 
accommodated in a large bariack-. Ml. 

Robinson i.appin. general manager of 
the Dining Hall on the College Park 

campus, was in charge of the meals 
which were served in the dining hall of 
the officers' club 
Swimming, boating, movies, parties, 

picnics, and lectures by visiting artists 
were conducted after class hours for the 
enjoyment of the students. Mr. Don 

Swann, a Baltimore artist, gave a 

demonstration and lecture on the vari- 
ous techniques of making an etching. 
He also did some watercolors of the 
Camp area, which were on display dur- 
ing the final exhibition. On another oc- 
casion, Mr. Harry Pouder, secretary of 
the Baltimore Association of Commerce, 
lectured on the theater. Mr. Louis 
Rosenthal, noted Baltimore sculptor, 
lectured and demonstrated on clay mod- 
eling. In addition to the lectures and 
demonstrations, several movies on paint- 
ing were shown to the class These in- 
cluded a movie on the watercolors of 
Elliot O'Haia and one on painting a 
mural by Thomas Benton. 

An added feature of the summer art 
classes was the Painting Exhibition, 
consisting of over one hundred paint- 
ings by the students, held in the Officers' 
Club House from July 31st to August 
5th. A tea was held on Sunday, July 31, 
from 4:00 to 6:00 P. M., to which the 
public and press were invited, and a 
large number of visitors were observed, 
both from areas adjacent to the camp 
and from Baltimore and Washington. 
The exhibition was indicative of the 
serious intent with which the students 
approached their creative efforts and 
provided a fitting climax to the six 
weeks' session. 

Regular art courses were offered dur- 
ing the summer on the College Park 
campus for the benefit of those students 
who were unable to attend the camp. 
Mr. Herman Maril. Instructor in Paint- 
ing and Art Appreciation, and Mr. 
Francis Grubar, Instructor in Art His- 
tory, remained at College Park to teach 
these summer courses.

Faculty Achievements 
A contributing factor to the growth 
and expansion of the Fine Arts Depart- 
ment may be found in the individual 
efforts and successes of its faculty mem- 
bers. Last year, for example, Mr Maril 
was awarded the Charcoal Club's Mc- 
Grath Memorial Prize for a gouache in 
the Baltimore Watercolor Club National 
Exhibition. The Exhibition was open to 
artists throughout the country. The 
Seventh Annual Exhibition of Audubon 
Artists awarded an honorable mention 
to Maiil's large oil painting. "Inlet," 
done from his sketches on Cape Cod. 
The Exhibition was held at the National 
Academy of Design in New York, which 
features the country's finest paintings, 
sculpture and watercolors. 


Mine. Carlette Engel de Janosi, In- 
structor in Art Appreciation, traveled 
abroad during the summer visiting the 
various art centers in Europe. 

In addition to its regular class offer- 
ing-, the Fine Arts Department con- 
ducts various "extra curricular" pro- 
grams which are designed to promote 
enriching and beneficial ait experiences 
for the students participating actively 
in its curricula, as well as for the entire 
student body and faculty, and the gen- 
eral public. 

The "Painting of the Month Club," 
initiated during the past year, was or- 
ganized for the purpose of creating a 
permanent, monthly exhibition of out- 
standing work accomplished during the 
current year by students enrolled in art 
classes. Each selected painting, chosen 
by a joint art student-faculty-public 
vote, is displayed for one month in the 
lobby of the Administration Building. 
The student selected each month auto- 
matically becomes a member of the ex- 
clusive "Painting Of The Month Club," 
and receives a special membership card. 
The first "Painting Of The Month 
Club" Exhibition, which also constituted 
the first competitive exhibition of stu- 
dents' art work ever held at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, was held in the 
Fine Arts Department last January. 
The attendance response, especially 
from the greater University population, 
was gratifying. 

Because of the warm response with 
which the "Painting Of The Month 
Club" has been received, this activity is 
being continued as a permanent part of 
the Fine Arts program. The Sketch 
Club, open to all members of the Uni- 
versity who are interested in Art, is 
also being continued during the current 

The first annual Fine Arts Exhibition 
of the University of Maryland, consist- 
ing of more than 250 entries in painting, 
sculpture, and drawing, was held in the 
Arts and Sciences Building from Hay 
23rd until June 3rd. An outside jury of 
artists was invited to select the wil 
from among the students' work. They 
were: Mr. R. McGill Mackall, Head of 
the Fine Arts Department at the Balti- 
more Institute of Art. Mr. Jacob 
Glushakow, noted free-lance artist from 
Baltimore, and Mr. Louis Rosenthal, 
outstanding Baltimore sculptor. 

Eligibility rules allowed only pel - 
taking Fine Arts courses at the Univer- 
sity to enter the contest. Cash awards, 
totaling |200.00, were presented to the 
winners by Professor James P. Whar- 
ton. Head of the Fine Arts Department, 
at the Honors and Awards Assembly 
held on the College Park campus on 
May "J4th. The prize money was con- 
tributed for art furtherance by Mi. 
Herbert Brune, Jr., President of the Art 
Foundation. Inc.. of Maryland, and an 
anonymous Maryland alumnus. 

New Book — Close Shave 

Alfred Toombs '33 Arts and Scicn- 
has just completed his first full 
length book entitled "RAISING A 
RIOT." It is published by the Crowell 
Company and is now on the bookstand. 
The story concerns the father who 

played the role »t" mother, Father and 
housekeeper to a ten year old son and 
two little daughters while al the same 
time supported them by writing. 

The announcement of the book comes 
at a rather significant time since Mr, 
Toombs lias just recovered from a seri- 
ous injury received near Leonardtown, 
Maryland. While driving with Ms wife 
this resident of Colton's Point in St. 

Mary's County saw a fight between two 

groups of men. Ho attempted to ho the 

good Samaritan and offered aid to one 
of the injured men. Mo was rewarded by 

beinjr stabbed severely in the chest and 
was rushed to a Baltimore hospital. 
While there he was visited by a repre- 
sentative of the Alumni Association, 
Walter Brooks Bradley '36 Arts and 
Sciences. Irony of the visit was that 
Bradley, affectionately known as "The 
Southern Planter," heads a funeral 
establishment in Dundalk. Some will 
say that a man named Toombs already 
had a sufficient battle on his hands. 

Mr. Toombs has been on the staff of 
the Washington Times-Herald, the 
Washing-ton Star, Washington Daily 
News, Chicago Sun-Times and has writ- 
ten for Colliers, the Saturday Evening- 
Post and Reader's Digest. During the 
war he was enlisted by O.S.S. in a civil- 
ian agent status. He was in charge of 
the first psychological warfare combat 
team ashore in Normandy. He later 
served as Chief of Intelligence Branch, 
in the Office of Information Control for 
the military government of Germany. 
He is a member of the national press 
club and the White House Correspond- 
ence Association. 

Chemical Headlines 

Russell E. Marker '23 made front 
page news in the Washington Star and 
the Philadelphia Inquirer on one of his 
more recent discoveries. The chemical 
and engineering news for September 5 
published an article concerning the dis- 
covery, the essence of which was fur- 
nished us by Dr. Charles E. White, a 
classmate who heads the University's 
Department of Inorganic Chemistry. 
Portions follow: 

"Discovery of a new raw material for 
synthesizing cortisone or compound E,

tropical yam, exists in relative abun- 
dance in the Western Hemisphere, es- 
pecially in Mexico and other tropical 
areas, where it is cultivated as a food. 

"Dr. Marker's work means that a 
more adequate supply of cortisone 
should be available for U. S. medical re- 
quirements in the near future.

Campus Visitors 

Robert T. Knode '20, Arts and Sci- 
ences, and John W. Smith '21 Engineer- 
ing were recent campus visitors to 
President H. C. Byrd and Dean Geary 
Eppley. Mr. Smith is now a ranking 
official with Seaboard Airlines and lives 
in Norfolk, Virginia. "Jake" played 
guard on the championship eleven in 

Bob Knode, nick-named "Captain 
Bob" was captain of both the 1919 foot- 
ball team and the 1920 baseball nine. In 
his Junior year he was awarded the 
Sylvester medal as the best all-around 
athlete in Maryland. 

Westervelt Romaine 

Mr. Westervelt Romaine has joined 
the Music Department staff of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland as teacher of piano 
and theory. The adding of Mr. Romaine 
to the Music Department will help to 
carry forward the increasing demands 
made on the department because of the 
operation of the Public School Music 
curriculum, which was initiated in the 
fall of 1948. Mr. Romaine's long experi- 
ence in the teaching of piano, harmony, 
and Public School Music will be of 
great help to the Music Department. 

Mr. Romaine graduated from Oberlin 
and did his graduate work at New 
York University and Columbia. He was 
supervisor of music at Teaneck, N. J. 
high schools and organist and choir- 
master of St. Paul's Cathedral in Pater- 
son, N. J. 

Following this assignment he joined 
the faculty of American University 
where he was Professor of Organ and 
Theory and Director of the American 
University School of the Air. In addi- 
tion to his duties at American Univer- 
sity he was organist and choirmaster 
at St. Paul's Church and National 
Chairman of the Television for Music 
Education National Conference. 

The Music Department plans to pre- 
sent Handel's "Messiah" in the Coli- 
seum on Wednesday, December 14, 1949. 
An electric organ will be installed to 
accompany the massed choims and Mr. 
Romaine will be at the console for this 

The Clef and Key will present a 
musical operetta in the early part of 
the second semester. The operetta will 
probably be Gilbert and Sullivan's 
"Pirates of Penzance." Mr. Romaine

uiC the World With the Girl Scout-" 

LAST APRIL at our spring reunion 
we heard that Irene Knox, class of 
'34, had just been notified that she would 
be one of three people from College 
Park to go to Sweden with fifteen Girl 
Scouts and one other leader chosen 
among candidates from all over the 
United States. The other two from Col- 
lege Park are Marilyn Langford who is 
a junior in the College of Home Eco- 
nomics and Mary Pate who has just en- 
rolled at the University this fall as a 
freshman. Irene has written the follow- 
ing account of her trip for us: — 

"After working with Senior age girls 
(14-18) as a Girl Scout Troop leader for 
the past 12 years and after spending 
many very enjoyable summers as a 
counselor in various Girl Scout Camps 
from New Hampshire to California, the 
unexpected happened. I was selected as 
an assistant leader to accompany 15 
Senior Girl Scouts to Sweden to par- 
ticipate in an international encampment 
of Scouts and Guides totaling approxi- 
mately 3,000 in number. The idea of 
3,000 girls camping together seemed 
absolutely impossible and we all felt 
that there must be an error in the num- 
ber. However, upon arrival, we found 
the impossible was true and the whole 
thing was so completely organized and 
managed that we were hardly aware of 
the great number participating in this 
very stimulating experience. 

"The purpose of the encampment was 
to increase international friendship and 
understanding and thus build, through 
our youth, a more peaceful world. If it 
were only possible for more of out- 
young people to experience the joy we 
did as we sang together, ate together, 
shared the beauty of the out of doors 
together and in many other ways ex- 
perienced the fellowship of working and 
playing together. We were all very im- 
pressed with the physical attractiveness 
of the Swedish girls, their sense of 
humor and their joy in living. Their 
fair hair, rosy cheeks, bright eyes and 
boundless energy was evidence of whole- 
some living. Though we were 'foreign- 
ers' we never felt that we were for the 
people looked like and acted so much 
like Americans. The Swedish country- 
side is beautiful and the Stroken Camp 
is unusually so. The weeping birches 
with their white bark, the gently rolling 
hills covered with evergreen forests, the 
open fields of grain and green meadows 
and especially the gorgeous blue lake 
all added up to make the camp site per- 
fect for the encampment. 

"We were there ten days. During that 
time we lived in tents, slept on the

ground, cooked our meals on an open 
fire and participated in many very in- 
teresting activities. These activities 
were quite varied. Camp fire programs, 
either large or small were held every 
night. On the General Camp fire nights 
all 3,000 came together. During the 
Unit Camp fire programs we usually 
joined with another unit and were able 
to talk to and become better acquainted. 
The whole encampment was organized 
into units of from 18 to 25 persons and 
in that unit we ate, slept and lived. In- 
terest groups were provided and anyone 
who wished could go to any group that 
interested her. For instance, there were 
about 300 people who took folk dancing. 
There were also large groups of people 
in gymnastics, camp craft, singing, and 
straw work, to name a few. 

"The experience I had will always be 
an outstanding one in my life. The 
places I have visited are no longer just 
a name on the map but are identified in 
my mind as people who were there — 
people so very like me in their hopes 
for a coordinated and peaceful world. 
I'm sure that through meeting us that 
ibly the concept of America is a bit 
improved too. I feel that by visiting in 
each other's homes and country, there 
will be improved international relation- 
ships. I sav — 'Let's have more and more 
of if." 

Faculty Ne« - 

Five new members have joined the 
faculty of the College of Home Eco- 
nomics this fall, three in the foods and 
nutrition department, one in clothing, 
and one in practical art. 

Nell Duke, who at one time taught 
textiles at the University of Maryland, 
has returned to be on the foods faculty. 
Her undergraduate work was done at 
Agnes Scott College; she received her 
master's degree from the University of 
Alabama. Additional places of study 
were George Peabody College for 
Teachers and Columbia University. She 
has recently organized the new home 
economics department at Mount Vernon 
Junior College in Washington, D. C. 

Mrs. Ruth Hastings Matthews, a 
graduate of the College of Home Eco- 
nomics in '46, and married to a member 
of the Maryland business office, has 

come to the foods departmenl from a 

two years' session of teaching at Juniata 
College in Huntington, Pennsylvania. 
She received hex MA. from Columbia 
Teachers' College. 

The third member of the foods de- 
partmenl is Miss Pela Braucher, who 
comes to Maryland after a wealth of 
experience that almost defies condensa- 
tion. Her teaching has included house- 
hold management, experimental and 
demonstration cookery, quantity cook- 
ery, and institutional management, sci- 
ence orientation, science and mathe- 
matics. She has had broad experience 
in personnel work in camps and colleges, 
as well as purchasing- work. Her re- 
search has included that of bacteriolo- 
gist and chemist, and work in biochem- 
ical and physiological research. Her 
time has been spent in farflung places, 
among them Hampton Institute, Vir- 
ginia; Elmira College, N. Y.; New Jer- 
sey College for Women, Rutgers Uni- 
versity, New Brunswick, N. J.; Ecole 
Champlain, Ferrisburg, Vermont; the 
Booth Packing Company in Baltimore, 
and the Carnegie Institute of Washing- 
ton. Her undergraduate work in chem- 
istry and math was done at Goucher 
College, her graduate work in biochem- 
istry and bacteriology in Pennsylvania 
State College, as well as other insti- 

Carolyn Middleton, newly added to the 
textiles and clothing department, has 
charge of Maryland's part in the co- 
operate percale research being carried 
on in conjunction with the Bureau of 
Human Nutrition and Home Economics, 
U.S.D.A. She has had two years teach- 
ing experience in high school in Ken- 
tucky, and two as teaching fellow at 
the University of Tennessee. 

In the crafts section of the practical 
art department, William Mahoney has 
taken the place of Gordon Lawson, who 
is completing graduate work at Cran- 
brook Academy of Art. Mr. Mahoney 
has studied at the Rhode Island School 
of Design, Massachusetts School of Art, 
and received his B.S. and M.A. at 
Teachers College, Columbia. There he 
was also an assistant instructor in 
ceramics and painting. 

Mrs. Helen Houston has returned to 
the clothing department after a leave 
of absence of a semester. 

Isabelle Tomberlin, formerly on the 
foods staff, is married to Reuben Nelson, 
and is living in Columbus, Ohio, doing 
research, part-time. Also a former foods 
instructor, Dorothy Legrand, is now 
with the diet research section of the 
University of Illinois. Mrs. Jeanne 
Beaty has returned to the University of 
Tennessee, after a year in the textiles 
section at Maryland. 

The former Miss Suzanne Cassels, in- 
structor in the practical art department, 
was married in June to Mr. Gilbert L.

President J 


By Arthur I. Bell D.D.S. 

President Alumni Council 

ANEW school year is well under 
way and it seems a most appro- 
priate time to both point out and em- 
phasize the importance of our Univer- 
sity to the higher educational needs of 
the state. It is also appropriate that we 
now become con- 
scious of the great 
lack there might 
have been in our 
educational set up 
had not President 
H. C. Byrd, in the 
face of bitter press 
opposition, been 
continually looking 
ahead and planning 
in advance. It 
would have been 
very easy for him 
to have adopted a 
status quo attitude 
during the past 
fifteen years in the 
face of this heavy 
pressure. Had he done so, our boys and 
girls would now be going to out of state 
colleges rather than to College Park and 
Baltimore. Many of them would not 
have had the opportunity to enjoy the 
advantages of a higher education for 
out of state education is an expensive 
proposition and most universities and 
colleges are too crowded now to give 
much consideration to prospective stu- 
dents from other states. 

It is also a time when we should be- 
come more conscious of the great con- 
tribution our University is able to make 
to the general welfare of the state and 
its citizens. Our state holds a proud 
position in this nation of ours because 
the University has kept abreast of the 
times in the past decade. College Park 
has been the mecca during the summer 
months of literally thousands of our 
citizens who have gone there for in- 
struction in all the many home activi- 
ties that make for better living. 
Through its Extension Service and the 
organization of County Agents, the Col- 
lege of Agriculture makes a contribu- 
tion to the welfare of our farmers that 
would be hard to evalue. Because of 

Dr. Bell 

the professional schools of the Univer- 
sity, and the high standards that air 
maintained by them, and bur state has 

a supply of physicians and dentists that 
few states have. We must never forget 
that as loyal and interested alumni in 

supporting the University we are mak- 
ing a definite contribution to the welfare 
of the State of .Maryland. 


The services rendered by the alumni 
of the Maryland Dental and Medical 
Schools in World War II were signifi- 
cant. These services are indicated by 
the facts that in 1943, Dr. Norman T. 
Kirk, Medical School 1910, was Surgeon 
General of the United States Army; 
Major General Robert H. Mills, Dental 
School 1907, headed the Dental Corps 
of the U. S. Army; Rear Admiral Alex- 
ander G. Lyle, Dental School 1912, 
headed the Dental Corps of the U. S. 
Navy; Rear Admiral William T. Wright, 
Dental School 1914, was the ranking 
dental officer of the U. S. Public Health 
Service; Dr. Fred W. Rankin, Medical 
School 1909, was President of the 
American Medical Association; and Dr. 
J. Ben Robinson, Dental School 1914, 
was President of the American Dental 
Association. These several men collabo- 
rated in developing the policies to be 
observed by the Medical Department of 
the Army and the Navy to provide 
health care for the fighting forces in 
World War II.

Government and Politics 

THERE were approximately 1,600 
students enrolled ill each of the 

past year's semesters in 2<> sections of 
G A P 1. The Department taught 13 

advanced courses the first semester and 
11 the second. There were some 45 Arts 
and Science majors in Government and 
Politics and approximately 10 Business 
and Public Administration students 
following the Government and Politics 
curriculum. There were eight students 
in the Department working toward the 
master's degree and four working to- 
ward the doctor's degree. Two of the 
master's candidates were graduated at 
the June '49 commencement. 


Professor Reuben G. Steinmeyer. studying 
political conditions in Europe. 

Professor Reuben G. Steinmeyer was 
granted a semester's leave of absence 
for the- first semester of 1949-1960. He- 
plans to spend his time studying 
political conditions in Europe. During 
the course of the year, he made many 
speeches throughout the State. He at- 
tended the annual conference of the 
American Academy of Political and 
Social Sciences at Philadelphia. He 
made two trips with students to ob- 
serve the proceedings of the United

The year opens with more than usual 

promise for the Department. • ' 
registrations are heavy, including those 
on the graduate level where there ha 

been a very notable increase in the 
number of graduate students whose ob- 
jective is the M.A. degree in Economics. 

Several of these graduate students are 
from foreign countries; and amonu 
others are students returning from a 
year of study abroad where their work 
was done under the direction of the 
University of Maryland. 

The Department of Economics is ac- 
tively supporting the work of the Uni- 
versity in its offering of courses off 
campus. These courses are being given 
at: Baltimore, Edgewood, and Holabird. 

Two members of the staff of the De- 
partment of Economics have spent some 
time during the summer vacation in 
Europe. Dr. Allan Gruchy made a first- 
hand investigation of the operation of 
the British Socialist Program. Dr. Dud-

Business Organization and 

The College of Business and Public 
Administration is well aware that the 
effectiveness of its programs of studies 
and research depend largely upon the 
training and experience of its faculty, 
and the desire and ability of individual 
faculty members to maintain close rela- 
tions with business, the government, 
and the community. The College is 
fortunate in that several faculty mem- 
bers have held key positions with busi- 
ness enterprises and governmental 
agencies and maintains advisory and 
consulting relationships with business 
and the government whereby the uni- 
versity and the community benefit di- 
rectly from the joint activity. 

The faculty has and is working in 
close conjunction with industries and

THE Nursing School of the Univer- 
sity oi' Maryland was notified re- 
cently that it has been accorded a rating 
among the top -•"> per cent of the better- 
equipped schools of nursing in the 
United States, rhe evaluation was made 
by a committee which represented the 
following nursing associations: l. Na- 
tional League of Nursing Education, 
J. American Nurses Association, '■>■ 

American Association of Industrial 
Nurses, 4. National Association of 
Colored Graduated Nurses, 6. Associa- 
tion of Collegiate Schools of Nursing, 
and <">. National Organisation for Public 

Health Nurses. 

Bases for the evaluation rested upon: 

1. General administrative policies, 

2. Preparation of the teaching faculty, 
which included the teaching load and 
quality of teaching, 

:!. Library facilities, 

4. Selection of students, 

5. Clinical facilities, and 

6. Opportunities for affiliation with 
other social and health agencies. 

The purpose of the committee is to 
make an over-all plan for '•nursing for 
the future" as advocated by recent 
studies of the National League of Nurs- 
ing Kducation. This plan comprises: 1. 
Facilitation of planning in nursing edu- 
cation on a regional and national basis, 
2. Furnishing information to community 
and state planning programs, '■'>. Indi- 
cating present needs in nursing educa- 
tion, 4. Identifying basic degree and 
diploma programs from which lists of 
schools with certain characteristics 
could be prepared, 5. Assisting in re- 
cruitment and in guidance of prospec- 
tive students to schools best suited to 
their capacities, <>. Demonstrating what 
additional funds are necessary for nurs- 
ing education and 7. Giving an analysis 
of the nation's nursing educational fa- 
cilities upon which to build nursing 
service for the future. 

This plan of initiating action to meet 
present needs, as well as to meet long 
range goals, has been endorsed by the 
Council of Professional Practice of the 
American Hospital Association. 

Recruitment For Polio 
(hue again this past summer cli- 
maxed a heavy poliomyelitis season in 
various sections of the United States. 
In some areas it was totally impossible 
for the nurses in the particular com- 
munity to handle the overwhelming 
number of cases of infantile paralysis. 

In accordance with an agreement re- 
cently adopted by the National Founda- 
tion for Infantile Paralysis and the 

American Red Cross, nurses needed for 

the cart' of infantile paralysis patients 

were recruited by the American Red 
I. Expenses for salaries, mainte- 

nance, and travel were underwritten by 

the National Foundation for Infantile 
Paralysis. The Foundation appealed to 

all nurses who might be available for 
any length of time during the epidemic 
■ M to report to their local chapter 
of the American Red I 

This year nurse eo-ordinators, who 
are professional BUncs, were appointed 
by district nurses associations who vol- 
unteered to act at liaison agent between 
the recruited nurse and the National 
Foundation's chapter, the local Amer- 
ican !:■ ' chapter, and the hos- 
pital. She acted to assist the nurse with 
many of her personal problems. 

This summer the overall nursing di- 
vision of the Maryland Chapter of the 
American Red Cross recruited some 23 
nurses for assignment in the sections 
where the epidemics were most severe. 
Areas where nurses were sent were 
Little Rock, Fort Wayne. Indianapolis, 
.Minneapolis and New York. Local hos- 
pitals in Baltimore cooperated by re- 
leasing nurses temporarily from the 
staff who were willing to nurse polio 
patients in the stricken areas. The Uni- 
versity of Maryland nurses responded 
to the call, and a substantial number 
were sent to aid in the emergency. 

At the same time a list of nurses will- 
ing to nurse polio patients in the Balti- 
more area was held in reserve in case 
an epidemic should occur. Although 
there were incidences of polio during 
the summer months, Maryland suffered 
no serious epidemic.

Live-In Plan 
By Evelyn Baikervill 

A plan combining the good points of 
hospital care with the old-fashioned 
custom of keeping babies in the rooms 
with their mothers, is being tried at 
the University Hospital. 

The new system is working out so 
well that Dr. Louis H. Douglass, pro- 
fessor of obstetrics at the hospital, ex- 
pects to adopt it for all maternity pa- 
tients in three to six months 

Even when this is done, Dr. Doue. 
explains, that sick and premature babies 
will be cared for in special nurseries. 

Advantages of the rooming-in plan 
are described by Dr. Doughi 

"The baby is free from the danger of 
contamination from the other babies 
that it is sometimes subjected to in 
large general nurseries. 

"This way. if one of the babies be- 
comes ill. it can be caught and treated 
without the others coming in contact 
with the infection. 

"The baby will receive better care, 
too, as the mother only has one to look 
after, while there are usually 50 to 60 
babies in the nursery here at one time. 

"The psychological effect on the baby 
is better when it is cared for by the 
mother right from the beginning It is 
important that they are fondled and 
noticed — something they miss in the 

Under the new system, the mother is 
limited to one visitor during her six or 
seven-day stay in the hospital — usually 
the father, or if he is not available, the 
next nearest relative. 

In this way the danger of infections 
being brought into the hospital is mini- 

The mothers on the whole back up Dr. 
Douglass' enthusiasm over the plan. 
Practically the only objections were 
voiced by mothers who have had several 
children. They say they came to the 
hospital expecting to rest. 

The baby is placed in the mot) 
room after the first day. It is put in a 
portable bassinet that has all the 
articles for bathing and changing on it. 

The University Hospital is the first in 
Baltimore to house babies in with 


Now let's tell the one about the 
young lady, registering for this semes- 
ter, who said. "I must arrange to ha\e 
a vacation for ten days or so in about 

Came the reply. "You better not 
register. This is entirely too important 
to figure on days off even before >ou 
save rei;i>tered. There is no excuse im- 
portant enough for that." 

"But when." asked the young lady, 
"can I have my baby?"

Kenneth R. Hammer '42, a graduate 
of the Law School, was recently elected 
Commander of the American Legion for 
the State of Maryland. His opponent at 
the State Convention was John P. 
Zebelean, Jr. also a graduate of the Law 
School and of the College of Arts and 
Sciences at College Park. 

The vote was one of the closest in 
State Legion history and it marked the 

first time a World Wat ll veteran had 
been chosen to head the Department. 

Mr. Hammer, who is twenty ci^ht 
years old, served tine.- yean with the 
Army An- Forces a- a Stall' Sergeant. 
Mr. Zebelean was in service from 1940 
to January, 1946 and spent twenty-nine 

months in the Asiat ic-Pacilic theater. 

Dr. K. Sumter Griffith, and 1880 grad- 
uate of Maryland Agricultural College 
and later a graduate of the Medical 

School, wrote to say he would be present 
for Homecoming and to enclose proof of 
his claim as the oldest alumnus of the 
University in point of years since grad- 
uation. His father, Captain F. Louis 
Griffith, was an original stockholder in 
the Agricultural College. Dr. Griffith 
enclosed a poem copied for him by W.

Mrs. Robert Wayne, the wife of an 
engineering major, owns Cleo, a baby 
cheetah, which she takes strolling in 
College Park. 

Cleo is an eight month old, thirty-five 
pound cat, quite oblivious to the com- 
motion she causes in public. Wayne, a 
transfer student from George Washing- 
ton and Penn State, purchased the ani- 
mal from a native in Ethiopia while 
employed there. 

This species of cat is the most friend- 
ly and gentle of all the felines, and the 
only wild cat which takes easily to 

An ardent dog-hater, Cleo chases be- 
wildered canines. She is an inborn tree 
climber, whistles loudly when alone, 
purrs like the loudest outboard motor 
when contented, and puts runs in nylons. 

Cleo is a temporary resident of the 
zoo (the only cheetah there). 

The Waynes look forward to the

programs, institutes, and conferences 
for the various levels of management. 
Faculty members not only organize and 
participate in the conference and in- 
Btitute type of program discussed, but 
they serve i»>th as instructors and as 
consultants for particular companies or 
government agencies desiring special

for Insurance Executives, plans are 

under way for an Accounting Institute

and Virginia. 

Staff members of the Department 
have actively cooperated with the Col- 
lege of Special and Continuation Studies 
in extension work of the University at 
Baltimore, Aberdeen, Greenbelt, The 
Pentagon, and other cities of Maryland, 
as well as participation in special train- 
ing programs with private industry. 

For several years the accounting staff 
has conducted a C.P.A. apprenticeship 
program with nationally known firms 
of certified public accountants. The stu- 
dents have gained valuable experience 
from these associations and most of 
them will be invited to join the firm 
after graduation. Members of the ac- 
counting staff have been offering small 
businessmen a high level of professional 
skill, advice, and service on such prob- 
lems as: (1) budgets. (2) tax matters, 
(3) financing problems, (4) compliance 
with various regulatory laws re taxes 
and licenses, and (5) installations of 
accounting systems. 

To promote closer unity with business 
executives and to maintain strong train- 
ing programs, the marketing, finance, 
and management staffs have established 
Btudent-faculty organization or clubs. A 
number of the clubs operate as affiliates 
of national associations. The Marketing 
Club is an affiliate of the American 
Marketing Association and the Man- 
agement Club is an affiliate of the 
Society for the Advancement of Man- 
agement and Beta Alpha Psi, a chapter 
of the National Accounting Fraternity. 
The Finance Club and the Propeller 
Club, through regular meetings with 
business executives, have broadened 
their knowledge and have made con- 
tacts which may prove useful after 


Some members of the faculty are en- 
gaged in research work and writing to 

add to the fund of knowledge within 
their fields. A number of individual 

members «>f the Department have pub-

and a capable leader, it is something to 
consider. What is it ? Read over these 
nineteen characteristics of a good 
Leader which wore listed by Dr. James 

A. Bowie, ami ask yourself if you need 

to develop any of them. 

1. Plenty of common souse. 

2. The ability to delegate authority. 

.!. Tin- ability to estimate accurately 
another's working capacity and special 
qualifications and abilities. 

4. Power to keep a group working to- 
ward a common goal. 

5. A VOtee that 8Ugge8t8 confidence. 
t>. .-1 liking for making decisions. 

7. Ability to giee clear-cut instruc- 

8. A habit of seeking neiv and im- 
proved methods. 

9. Freedom from prejudice. 

10. Calm acceptance of criticism. 

11. Willingness to receive suggestion 
from subordinates. 

12. Ability to praise work without ful- 
some flattery. 

13. Ability to criticize const ntctively 
without antagonizing. 

And, of course, as the former student 
goes along in his chosen walk of life, 
gaining as he goes in the requirements 
for leadership, he notes that Shakes- 
peare did not take in as much territory 
as the words would seem to indicate 
when he wrote "Experience is ALL." 

Many great men have made good 
without the benefit of a fine basic edu- 
cation, but such men will tell you that, 
none the less, education is the control- 
ling factor and that, even though you 
do not realize it at the time that you 
are getting it, experience is the acqui- 
sition of education. 

A writer, for instance, will write 
things when he is twenty years old that 
he would not have written at the age of 
thirty. He has, over ten years, been 
educated by experience. It is that way 
with leadership too. A fellow has more 
of it at thirty than at twenty. 

In the armed forces, every now and 
then you run across some good officer 
of high rank who made the grade from 
the ranks, sans a college background. 
But such a leader will invariably tell 
you that he had to get the education 
the hard way and that the road would 
have been much easier with the benefit 
of a basic college education. 


"The University of Maryland; what 
it is and what it is to be," was the 
subject of an address made by Dr. H. C. 
Byrd, President of the University of 
Maryland, at the fall convocation held 
in Ritchie Coliseum on October 20, 

Dr. Byrd's address was in the nature 
of a report of progress, both academic 
and physical, of the University, to the 
student body, the faculty and alumni. 

The program opened with the Pre- 
sentation of Colors and included mu- 
sical numbers rendered by John Walser, 
solo baritone of the National Presby- 
terian Church, Washington, D. C. 

Mr. Walser, who recently sang in the 
presentation of Gounod's "Faust" at 

Lienor Auditorium, rendered From 
"Faust," the aria "Even Bravest Heart 
May Swell." He also Bang Malotte'a 
"Song of the Open Road." 

A feature of the program was the 
rendition of Julia Ward Howe's im- 
mortal "Battle Hymn of the Republic" 

by the University's Combined Chorus 
under the direction of Professor B. 

Harlan Randall, Director of Music. 
The University's Air R.O.T.C. Hand, 

under Director Prank V. Sykora ren- 
dered several numbers. 

Invocation was given by Reverend 
Lloyd Brown and the benediction was 
pronounced by Mr. Howard D. Rees. 
Both are campus chaplains. 

Dr. Allan G. Gruchy acted as Chief 
Marshal. Colonel Geary Eppley, Dean 
of Men, was Chairman of the Convo- 
cation Committee. Other Committee 
members were Dean T. B. Symons, Dr. 
W. M. Gewehr, Colonel John C. Pitch- 
ford, Registrar Alma H. Preinkert, Dr. 
Ray Ehrensberger, Colonel Harvey L. 
Miller, Professor Arthur B. Hamilton, 
Professor Mark M. Shoemaker, Pro- 
fessor B. Harlan Randall, Assistant

Honor John Dew ey 

The College of Education and the De- 
partment of Philosophy, University of 
Maryland, held a dinner meeting on 
October 20th in honor of the distin- 
guished American Philosopher, John 
Dewey, who celebrated on that day his 
90th birthday. Dinner was served at 
the University Dining Hall. A central 
dinner party was held in his honor in 
the Commodore Hotel in New York on 
that occasion. The Maryland meeting at 
College Park was one of a number of 
others being given concomitantly in 
various parts of the country. 

The speaker at Maryland was Dr. 
Arthur E. Murphy, Professor of Philos- 
ophy and Head of the Sage School of 
Philosophy at Cornell University. He 
spoke on "John Dewey and the Amer- 
ican Tradition." Professor Murphy 
knows John Dewey and his work well. 
He is himself one of the leaders of 
American Philosophy, and is especially 
well-known for his incisive critical ap- 
praisal of contemporary American 
philosophers and of the contribution 
they have made to American thought 
and culture. 

Philosophers and educators through- 
out the Washington and Baltimore 
areas attended the dinner. 


With over forty experienced gridiron 
hopefuls trying for starting berths, sixteen 
of which are returning veterans of last 
year's pigskin capers on Guam. the 
"Leathernecks'' of 5th Service Depot are 
making the going anything but "easy'' for 
their opponents. 

Coached by 1st Lt. W. K. Byrd. former 
center for the University of Maryland (pic- 
lured above), the Leathernecks employ the 
T-formalion in an effort to better their last 
year's record of eight wins and four losses. 
Assisting Byrd will be Earle Parsons, back- 
field coach (formerly with the San Fran- 
cisco '49ers). 2nd Lt. Robert Helding. line 
coach (who played for the Naval Academy 
in 1944 and 1945), and Warrant Officer Willie 
Dykes, line coach (tackle for Middle Georgia 
College in 1939). 

So this year U. S. football again has a 
"Coach Byrd" even if you have to go all the 
way to Guam to see him at work. 

Lieutenant Byrd is a member of Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon.

ED MODZELEWSKI, L9 year old, 
200 pound pile driving backfleld 
ace for the University of Maryland, sug- 
gests, in the minds of old timers who 
remember the teams of the "20s, the 

Marino Corps' immortal Frank Goettge. 

Tho West Natrona, Pa., terrapin has 
the height and the weight thai Goettge 
carried and runs with his knees rolling 
high a la Goettge. If. in the three years 
he has to play. "Mighty Mo" will con- 
sistently put up the type of football 
Goettge produced. Jim Tatum's Terps 
will really have a lad to be remembered 
in after years. 

It was in the 1920's, at the Baltimore 
Stadium, that the Marines faced the 
Third Army Corps team, an outfit star- 
studded with recent West Point gradu- 
ates as well as Vic Noyes, a Naval 
Academy star, who had accepted an 
Army reserve commission. Everything 
went in those days, including reserve 
officers in the Army line-up. 

Goettge's running mate in the back- 
tield that day was a lightweight Cor- 
poral named McMains. They formed a 
great pair. That day Goettge did more 
thing's with a football than a monkey 
can with a cocoanut. The Marines hand- 
ed the Army a grade A pasting. 

In the press box was the late Walter 
Camp. He was the first to pick Ail- 
Americans. No others did so in Camp's 
day. He was "THE' selector. For his 
lead that day Camp typed, 

"Today I saw, for today at least, the 
greatest football player I have ever 
seen. For today at least greater than 
Jim Thorpe. I refer to a young Marine 
lieutenant, a World War veteran named 

That quote was always number 1 in 
Frank Goettge's clipping book and, 
when he referred to it he remarked, "I 
would have been bet- 
ter if I had had a 
chance to play be- 
fore the war; before 
I acquired these 
trench feet." 

Before the war 
Frank had played as 
a freshman at the 
University of Ohio. 
Marines dubbed him 
"The Great Bull 

Frank Goettge, 
then a Colonel, gave 
his life on Guadal- 
canal on a mission 
that was strictly vol- 
untary and which 
higher authority had 
tried to talk him out 
of. But Goettge was 
the sort of fellow 
who did not send 
men where he would

not go himself, 
shed him he was 
for a great team 

So Modzelewski may well be proud 

when old timers liken him to Goettge. 

To football fans who remember thai i 

"tops" and to Marines it came close 

to being sacred. If the driving young 
Terrapin can keep up the tire that com- 
pares him to Goettge he will indeed he. 
in every respect, a "Mighty Mo." 


Maryland's Sailing Club skimmed to 
two victories at Buzzard's Point. 

Skippers Jack Martin and Pete Geiss 
piloted Maryland to a victory over 
Georgetown and St. John's, qualifying 
the team for the Middle Atlantic Asso- 
ciate Members Championships to he 
held on the Potomac. 

Maryland copped the Greater Wash- 
ington Championship when its 50-point 
total nosed out George Washington's 


47 and Georgetown's 44. St. John's fin- 
ished last with 17 tallies. 

Martin was high point scorer in the 
first win with a total of .'52, while Mary- 
land's Bob Clagett copped the honors 
in the second win with a 27.

experts by battling the Spartans from 
start to finish and holding a 7-0 lead at 
halftime. More about this game later. 

Still Trouble Ahead 

When this was 
written, the Tatum- 
ites were having a 
respite with no game 
scheduled for Oc-

to North Carolina

listed for the 22d as 
a prelude to the in-

On past performances of the Terps

good potential strength, except G. W.. 
which lacks reserves but has a demon

Maryland, in its first three games. 
displayed a powerful all-around defense 
and an able running game but was well 
below par in its aerial skill. This was 
particularly true against Michigan 
State when the Terps tossed only five 
times and completed a lone heave for 
five yards. It should be mentioned.

While the triumphs over Virginia

their greater heft and manpower. Prac-

Forest, in the preseason dope, had been 
picked to fight it out with North Caro-

crown. Now it appears as if Maryland 
should have that role. 

That Michigan State game was a 
gruelling affair, with Maryland scoring 
in the first three minutes after .lake 
Kowden recovered a fumble on the 18- 
yard line. Yern Seibert. a senior, and 
Mo Bfodzelewski, the mighty soph, soon 
ate up the distance with the latter 
going over. Bob Dean booted the extra 
point and the score looked big for a 

Third Period Decides 

It stayed 7-0 until early in the third 
period when Michigan State, getting 
the ball on a punt at midfield returned 
it to Maryland's 37 yard line. The 
Spartans then passed and powered 
their way to the tying touchdown. 
Shortly afterward the Spartans got 
the ball on the Terp 34 when Stan 
Lavine fumbled after a 14-yard gain. 
Their running game was checked near 
the goal line but a pass got the telling 

Maryland got to the Michigan State 
32 late in the final quarter but hope for 
a tie faded when the Terps failed by 
inches to get a first down. In the last 
analysis, it was the 84-degree heat and 
the Spartans second half aerials that 
subdued the Terps. 

The winners and the writers and 
scouts at the game had nothing but 
praise for the Terps, labeling Guard 
Bob Ward and Tackle Ray Krouse, who 
wrecked Spartan plays time and again, 
as truly all-American caliber. Modzelew- 
ski also lived up to his sobriquet by 
reeling off 54 of Maryland's net 101 
yards from rushing. 

Make Slow Start 

As to Maryland's other two games. 
The Terps, sputtering, fumbling and 
being hard hit by penalties at inoppor- 
tune times in the Virginia Tech opener, 
had two touchdowns called back in the 
first half and had to score just before 
intermission to make it 7-all. Tech got 
its markers as the result of two 15- 
yard penalties against Maryland and 
a high pass over Roth's head on at- 
tempted fourth down kick that gave 
the Gobblers the ball on the Terp 14- 
yard marker. 

It was entirely different in the second 
half with the four touchdowns high- 
lighted by a 52 yard punt return by 
Jim LaRue, which set up one of the 
scores, and a spectacular finishing 
touch. The final touchdown ate up 64 
yards and was started when Modzelew- 
ski broke through the line into the 
Tech backfield. Just as he was going 
down he lateraled to end Ted Betz who 
in turn tossed to Lavine who went 
across standing up. 

Following the kickoff after Lavine's 
touchdown, his third of the game, Bill 
Goodman, quarterback of Tech, and Bill 
Copperthite, Terp end, suddenly started

with players of both squads and spec- 
tators along the sidelines having a 
merry time. Goodman and Copperthite 
were banished and peace was restored 
without any real casualties. 

Subdue Hoyas Quickly 
Maryland did not wait to ice the 
game with Georgetown, taking a 20-0 
lead in the first half and holding the 
Hoyas helpless until late in the game 
when reserves took over. LaRue ran a 
Georgetown punt back 44 yards to pave 
the way for the first marker and an- 
other came after Rowden grabbed a 
fumble on the Hoya 36. A penalty hurt 
Maryland but Tucker passed to End 


EARL ROTH. Terp backlield ace. is doing 
some great kicking. In the game against 
Michigan State, Roth averaged 40 yards per

Henry Fox for the score. The third 
counter before intermission resulted 

from a 7<> yard drive. A pass from 
Lavine to Halfback Joe Kutcha got 38 
yards and the final effort was a pitch 
In Fox iii the end zone. 

There was no scoring iii the third 
period but Maryland was near the goal 
line when the session ended and counted 

on the second thrust in the final quar- 
ter. A little later End Elmer Wingate 

snared a Georgetown aerial and ran 
hack to the 5-yard line. A couple 
punches and the hall was over. 

Just before the game ended a des- 
perate Georgetown pass from near mid- 
field found a receiver at the goal line. 

Does Well At Rushing 
Maryland gained 2:57 yards in rush- 
ing and made good on 4 of 10 aerials 
for 68 yards against Virginia Tech. It 
traveled 27<i yards on the ground and 
63 yards with three good passes in 16 
and two touchdown heaves against 
Georgetown, and, as previously stated 
earned 101 net yards in rushing and 5 
yards in passing as only 1 of 5 tosses 
connected in the Michigan State tussle.

JAKE ROWDEN. Maryland center, on his

that meant seven points for the Terps.

backs — Bob Roulette, Earl Roth. 

Could Do Double Dut> 
The first named players, in the main. 
are the defensive unit but fellows like 
Ward and Krouse play most of the 
game and practically all of them could 
be just as valuable on attack if doing 
double duty was logical. 

Among the able talent that did not 
get into the Michigan State game he- 
cause of injuries or other practical rea- 
sons were Ed Pobiak, tackle; Tom Mc- 
Quade and John Troha, guards, and Joe 
Kutcha, Jack Targarona, Lynn Davis, 
Bob Shemonski and Buck Early, backs. 


His accurate toe made good on four of five 
tries for points after touchdown against 
Virginia Tech. He also made all but tow of 
em good against Georgetown. 



Maryland's soccer team, coached by 
Doyle Royal, which won its first game 
against Gettysburg, 8-1, at College 
Park on October 7. may be the host 
since the unbeaten outfit of 1942. 

Ten games in all arc on the schedule, 
including Salisbury, Loyola and Penn 
State at home and Virginia, Temple,

North Carolina and Duke away. Penn 
State, which will be met in the big 
home battle on Novemher 15, and 
Temple are Northern powerhouses, 
while North Carolina is touted as about 
the best in the South this year. 

Royal is well fortified with veterans 
with such men as Jim Belt, all-America 
last season, who along with Co-captain 
Corky Anacker, Eddie Rieder, Don 
Terzi, Gene Volpe and John Linz were 
all-State choices in 1948. Linz missed

sophomores on the squad is Guillermo

Red Diebert and Kenny Fowler, return-

also are big assets. 


If you think having to sneeze while 
being shaved by a deaf barber is a bad 
spot, picture little Arthur Cook, Mary- 
land's Olympic champion rifle shot, 
going through with a bad attack of hay 
fever with incident watering eyes and 
sneezes, while trying to defend his Na- 
tional championship in Iowa. 

Cook finished outside the prize list 
with an aggregate 3172. Hay fever cost 
him the title. 

The event was won by Robert Eric 
McMains, Dallas, Texas, who scored 
3189 out of a possible 3200. 


Bill Meek's freshman football aggre- 
gation, which appears quite capable, 
won its opening game by defeating the 
strong Fork Union Military Academy 
there on October 1 by 9-7. A safety pre- 
ceded a late touchdown pass that car- 
ried 20 yards. Fork Union got its score 
on an aerial that covered 55 yards. Last

MARYLAND'S first 20 
years of football were 
the hardest and still 
are for the historian 
who strives for accu- 
racy. About the only 
"^£2^ thing definite and un- 

disputable is that the 
gridiron sport was started officially in 
L892 and that the game, like the institu- 
tion, is growing rapidly in size and 

Football history at College Park ac- 
tually is divided into three distinct 
eras, the before-Byrd stage, the H. C. 
Hurley) Byrd regime and the after- 
liyrd period. Now we are in the third 
year of the ambitious Jim Tatum 
regime. Curley Byrd's regime was by 
far the most successful of the past eras. 

Since football was 
started it has been 
fostered under three 
different names, the 
original Maryland 
Agricultural College, 
which first function- 
ed in 1856; Mary- 
land State College 
from 1916 to 1919, 
inclusive, and the 
University of Mary- 
land since 1920. 
Byrd, now president 
and the "builder" of 
the University, was 
graduated from 
M.A.C. in '08, and 
coached under all ofl 
the institution's titles. He was an all- 
around athlete in his undergraduate 
days, being outstanding for three years 
in football, baseball and track. 

Markej First Real Coach 

There has been considerable confu- 
sion, and it never will be fully clarified, 
about the coaching of the early teams. 
However, it is pretty firmly established 
that the captains of the elevens from 
1892 through 1901 were the playing 
mentors and that D. John Markey, a 
graduate of Frederick High School and 
who had studied at Western Maryland, 
was the first full-time coach. 

Markey. now a retired Army general 
living at Walkersville. Md.. served in 
the Spanish-American War. enlisting 
at the aire of 15. He also served con- 
spicuously in World Wars I and II. In 
telling about his football experience 
and verifying his three-year stay at 
College Park, he said: 

"When I came out of the Army at 
the close of the Spanish-American War 

where I played on an all-college regi- 
mental eleven of the First Maryland 


Mr. Hottel 

Infantry, I organized a team that 
played sanies in the State and the Dis- 
trict of Columbia daring the season of 
19HO. I then was assistant coach of the 
fin Maryland eleven under Mickey 
Whitehurst, one of the best known ath- 
of his time." 
Harry I). Watts of New York, one of 
Maryland's nationally prominent alum- 
ni, who was captain and fullback in 
1903, recalls with pleasure playing 
under Markey in 1992. Watts, who also 
recalls the captain-coaching system, 
started playing in 1901 when E. B. 
Dunbar functioned as leader and 

Always Kulinc Authoritj 

While the captain did the coaching 
in the years from 1892 through 1901, 
and this also is verified by Clifton 
Fuller of Cumberland, who played on 
the 1892 and 1893 teams, and Grenville 
Lewis, the threat fullback who led the 
1896 outfit and who now lives in South- 
ern Maryland, there always was a 
higher authority in charge. 

Prof. H. M. Strickler, who came from 
Randolph-Macon College, directed af- 
fairs from 1892 through 1897, and also 
played on some of the teams. It was 
common in those days for members of 
the faculty and even "outsiders" to 
play. Strickler was described by Fuller 
as "a physical education teacher who 
knew little about football." 

An athletic committee ruled the roost 
in 1898 and 1899 and in 1900 the late 
Prof. Charles S. Richardson came from 
the Eastern Shore to head the Athletic- 
Board most of the time until his retire- 
ment in 1939. He was the person mainly 
instrumental in bringing Byrd back to 
his alma mater in 1912. He wasn't a 
football expert, but he knew and ap- 
preciated human values. 

Back in the days before the Byrd 
coaching era. M.A.C. played many 
teams other than collegiate outfits, 
more than half the schedules being 
made up of high school and athletic 
club elevens. It was during this early 
period of football that M.A.C. had two 
unbeaten seasons, such as they were. 

Had Unbeaten Seasons 
In 1893, the Farmers, as they then 
were labeled, captained and tutored by 
S. H. Harding, won all six games, de- 
feating Eastern High School. 36-0; Cen- 
tral High School, 6-0; and Orient A 
lti-ti; all of Washington; Baltimore City 
College. 18-0; St. John's College of 
Annapolis, 6-0; and Western Marvland. 

Arthur Pue Gorman, later a brilliant 
United States Senator from Maryland, 
has been credited by some with doing 
part of the coaching of the 1893 team 
but Fuller says otherwise. "I remember 
meeting Gorman on the football field 

oho day when we all were introduced 
t(. him bul I'm Bure he never returned 
to do any coaching," Puller wrote us, 
and he certainly has displayed a keen 
memory about other matters. 

So you readily can agree that there 
has been a lot of myth and mystery 

about tho early days of football at 
College Park that never will bo com- 
pletely solved. 

Team At Medical School 

One of the most confusing factors in 
efforts to unravel the Old Line football 
puzzle of yesteryears is that in the 
early days of the game the Medical 
School in Baltimore also had a team. 
In fact. M.A.C. and the Medical School 
met seven times, according to our 
records, each winning three games and 
playing a tie. However, the trouble 
arises from Maryland's opponents, 
some of whom whipped the Medical 
School and now want to charge it 
against the College Park institution. 
Most of this, we believe, finally has 
been ironed out after considerable 
correspondence and research, making 
the records against our present rivals 
as correct as possible. 

But getting back to those unbeaten 
seasons, M.A.C. had another in 1896 
when the team was led and coached by 
Lewis, rated an all-time great on the 
diamond as well as on the gridiron. 
Mainly on the strength of his skill and 
fortitude, Business High and Central 
High of Washington were beaten, 34-0, 
and 10-0; Bethel Military Academy, 
20-0; Alexandria High, 15-0; Western 
Maryland, 16-6, and the Maryland Med- 
ical School and Gallaudet College held 
to scoreless ties. Lewis also had to do 
much reorganization work as there was 
no football in 1895 due to a dispute with 
the M.A.C. commandant. In fact, there 
practically was no competition of any 
kind during the 1895-96 term. 

With the advent of Byrd in the fall 
of 1912 listing of high schools and ath- 
letic clubs went by the boards and the 
all-collegiate schedules gradually took 
on sterner opposition. 

Byrd In Near Sweep 

Byrd came closest to a sweep in 1931 
when the Old Liners won eight games, 
tied the powerful Kentucky team that 
contained the famous Shipwreck Kelly 
and other noted stars and lost only to 
Vanderbilt at Nashville. Navy was one 
of the victims and this was the Old 
Line outfit that wrecked the Dick 
Harlow-coached Western Maryland 
juggernaut, 41-6. Seven of the starters 
were all-State choices — Al Pease, end; 
Ernie Carliss, tackle; Jess Krajcovic, 
guard; and the entire backfield of Ray 
Poppleman, Shorty Chalmers, Bozie 
Berger and Al Woods. Woods is the 
same balding burnt-almond haired guy 
who still is holding forth in football 
and physical education at College Park. 

Another old Terp, as player and 
coach, is Burton Shipley, who has 
"earned his oats" on past performances, 
not to mention his present worth. He 
was a stripling when Byrd came back 
to College Park and was one of Curley's

foremost all-around athletes for several 
years, the only Old Liner ever to win 
six letters in each football and baseball. 
There were prep and sub-freshman 

I in those days in addition to the 
four collegiate terms. Ship quarter- 
backed the eleven in a startling G-0 win 

Western Maryland in 1911, scoring 
the only touchdown. Byrd was special 

II for that game and the triumph 
blazed the trail for his permanent re- 
turn to his alma mater and subsequent 
fame. Burt, who also is in the Physical 
Education Department, has tutored the 
varsity nine for 2'i years and gave up 
basketball after 24 seasons at the helm. 

Some Byrd Standby s 

Geary (Swede) Eppley, who came 
along several years later, is another one 
of Byrd's right arms. He was a football 
and track ace and later agronomist and 
track coach who now is Dean of Men 
and chairman of the Council on Inter- 
collegiate Athletics. 

Another bulwark deserving special 
mention is Dr. William (Bill) Kemp, 
now director of the Extension Service, 
who played fullback on that 1911 outfit 
and captained the 1912 eleven, Curley's 
first full-time aggregation. Bill, who 
also was a track star, is another mem- 
ber of the Council on Intercollegiate 

And also outstanding in the Byrd 
regime as athletes and mentors and 
still the best lacrosse coaching duo in 
the country are Jack Faber and Al 
Heagy, who along with Woods, were 
the highly capable and willing "lambs" 
whenever a snarl occurred in the foot- 
ball tutoring set-up. They, with the 
late Roy Mackert, equally great as a 
fullback and tackle in his grid days 
just after World War I, were By id's 
righthand men who carried on grace- 
fully when material was far from being 
as plentiful and proficient as it is nowa- 
days. However, to us old-timers, those 
were the happy, pressureless days when 
Byrd was content to win 60 percent of 
the games with the added relish of up- 
setting one of the big-timers most 
every season, such as Penn, Yale, Rut- 
gers, Syracuse, etc. 

Supplee Still Around 

And on that famous 1923 team, that 
whipped Penn and greatly outplayed 
and came within an ace of licking Yale's 
National championship eleven that had 
swamped all other opposition, were five 
linemen who never had played football 
before matriculating at College Park. 
The score was Hi- 14 Yale. All the 
writers said it should have been 28-10 
Maryland. Bill Supplee. who played end 
on that team and who was chosen All- 
America by three leading authorities, 
is the same Dr. Supplee who is a valued 
member of the University staff and 
also a member of the Council on Inter- 
collegiate Athletics. 

And in mentioning the old-timers, 
and it is too bad that space limits us 
to a few, we certainly could not over- 
look Senator Millard (Chief) Tydings, 
a member of the Board of Regents, who 
managed the 1908 eleven, and Dr. Ernie 

Cory, who captained it. Dr. Cory, fa 

miliar figure around the campus, is 

State entomologist. Perennial treasurer 
of the "M" Club, l>r. Cory also is a 
member of the Council on intercollegi- 
ate Athletics. 

Getting down to present day foot- 
ball, it certainly has become preten- 
tious, complex and specialized. Where it' 
you had a fairly good starting line-up 
and a half dozen reserves in Byrd's day 
and a good many years following, you 
were considered w : ell fixed, we have 
reached the stage of 44 varsity players, 
sometimes 55, the two-platoon system, 
one for offense and the other defense, 
and unlimited substitutions. 

Now There's A Parade of Players 

While we presume these new wrinkles 
are self-defense measures, and even 
many of the coaches decry their neces- 
sity, we feel along with plenty of others 
that a lot of fun has been taken out of 
the sport for both players and spec- 
tators. You keep so busy trying to keep 
track of substitutions that you almost 
lose sight of the fine points of the 

But to get back to the historical 
angle, which we were supposed to write 
about, George Hoblitzell, of whom we 
have no real background but which we 
hope to get, was the organizer of foot- 
ball at College Park. While a student 
he formed an informal team in 1888 
that continued through 1891 and played 
several games with minor teams. 

It also is noteworthy that Dr. W. W T . 
Skinner of Kensington, Md., now re- 
tired, and a former chairman of the 
Board of Regents, was captain and 
quarterback of the 1892 team and gen- 
erally active in fostering M.A.C. ath- 
letics all during his undergraduate 
days. He really developed what Hoblit- 
zell started. 


Charlie Keller, former Maryland 
baseball star (Ag. '37) now New York 
Yankee outfielder, was the recipient of 
a token of appreciation for his services 
to baseball at Astoria, Long Island 
when he appeared on "This Is the Amer- 
ican Way" show. 

Keller's award was an inscribed base- 
ball bat purchased by pennies contrib- 
uted by the boys and girls of Astoria. 
Two children fans made the presenta- 
tion, assisted by Frank Luther, radio 
star, and Frank Muto, manager of the 

"Now don't worry. In College Park we 
have a rule lhal visiting parents straighten 
up after the children."

"M" Club Gives Him Tough Assignment, Says Bill Hottel 

WE HAVE been put squarely on 
the spot by the "M" Club" the 
lettermen's organization of the Univer- 
sity. It has asked us to write a series 
of yarns about past athletic greats of 
the Old LiiU' institution, starting with 
football. That is some assignment if you 
don't want to slight 
many deserving per- 
formers. In fact, jus- 
tice cannot be done 
in limited time and 
space. Then, too, in 
the not too distant 
past we didn't have 
specialized athletes 
and you simply can- 
not stick to one sport in writing about 
the stars of yesteryears. In fact, you 
were an athletic piker in the old days 
unless you took part in at least two 
pastimes and it was common to have 
three-letter men. 

For this article we have chosen a 
team, the great football outfit of 1923, 
that was the first Old Line aggregation 
to gain national fame. It played two 
games that season that doubtless got 
the Old Liners more acclaim and pub- 
licity than any other year in the history 
of sports at College Park. First there 
was a 3-0 victory over a powerful Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania eleven on Oc- 
tober 6 of that year and a little more 
than a month later. November In, a 
14- lti defeat by Yale's national cham- 

pionship team that would have been a 
comparatively easy triumph had it not 
been for inopportune fumbles. 

Ail-Time Grid Material 

That team, which had plenty of what 
you call fortitude, contained at least 
four players whose names always are 
considered when all-time Maryland 
elevens are chosen. They were Thomas 
Jackson (Jack) McQuade. '24, fullback: 
Joseph Burger, '25, tackle; John (Tony) 
Hough. '25. guard, and William C. (Bill) 
Supplee, '26, end. Others who came close 
to the top in viewing the feats of this 
team were Ed Pugh, '25, halfback; Kirk 
Besley, playing as a graduate student 
after completing his undergraduate 
work at College Park, halfback; Cecil 
(Tubby) Branner, '24. halfback; Irving 
(Bottle) Hall. '25. guard; Ralph (Pan 
Lanigan, '25. end, and John (Boothhead ) 
Groves, '24. quarterback. 

McQuade, who greatly outshone all- 
America Bill Mallory of Yale in that 
game, and who passed to drove for both 
of Maryland's touchdowns against the 
Elis. also was a driving ball carrier, a 
scintillating blocker and devastating on 
defense. We saw him kayo two players 
on one run as North Carolina was 
beaten, 14-0. He also was a murderous 
defense man in lacrosse despite that he 
lacked polish as a stickhandler. 

Burger, tall, husky and smart, didn't 
confine his football playing to blocking 

and tackling. With a shift made to put 
him on the outside of the line he caught 
many forward passes, especially in a 
pinch. He followed his football each fall 
by effectively playing guard on the 
basketball quint and defense for the 
lacrosse team. 

Hough, a cocky, rugged and highly- 
aggressive performer, also was just 
about as good a lacrosse defenseman as 
ever played the game. We'll never for- 
get an act of his in a 3-1 victory over 
Johns Hopkins in 1925. He was playing 
against Doug Turnbull, all-America at- 
tackman and one of the best the game 
ever has produced. Late in the game he 
took the ball away from Turnbull, whom 
he held scoreless, and then handed it 
back to him saying: "You so-and-so you 
couldn't hit the side of a barn." Turnbull 
hurled the ball at Hough's head and 
missed that. 

Supplee An Ace End 
Supplee, now Dr. Supplee of the 
Maryland faculty, was named as the 
greatest end to play on Franklin Field 
in Philadelphia that year and 
chosen on a couple of all-America 
elevens. He also kept busy all during 
the year, being a topnotch basketball 
center and one-man track team in the 

Croves. a three-sport man. called the 
signals in the Yale game and he, Sup- 
plee and Burger hugged most of Mc- 
Quade's short, snappy passes as the Old 
Line twice drove 80 yards for touch- 
downs and about a like distance on a 
march that cost a score when the ball 
was fumbled. His other sports were 
basketball and baseball in which he was 
highly efficient. 

Pugh, an ace hurdler and quartermiler 
for the track team, also played bril- 

liantly in football, more than upholding 

his end iii the Penn and Yale games. 

Hall, also a lacrosse (IctVnsenian ; 

Besley, an outstanding shortstop in 
baseball, ami Branner, a rugged and 

clever attackman in lacrosse, figured 
prominently in the Penn game but did 
not get into action against Yale. Bran- 
ner gained unusual attention for his 
absence in the New Haven contest. Hall 
and Besley were kept out by injuries 
but Branner was left at home by Coach 
Curley Byrd for skipping the Friday 
practice session to attend a high school 
tilt in Washington. Byrd doubtless still 
regrets his decision as Branner was a 
good ball carrier and great defensive 
player and the back who took his place 
cost .Maryland the victory by his mis- 
cues and was no Branner on defense. 

Won Anyway, Byrd Feels 

But despite the fumbling and Bran- 
ner's absence, Byrd, then serving his 
12th season as coach, maintains to this 
day that a dropkick by Groves near the 
close of the battle was "good by a mile" 
and that Maryland really won, 17-16. It 
was a boot by this same Groves late in 
the fray that stunned 40,000 at the 
Penn game. 

Besley, who scaled all of 142 pounds, 
played the entire 60 minutes against 
Penn. earned a nickname when one of 
the Philadelphia players called him a 
"Little Napoleon" for his play and dis- 
play of grit. His fellow players short- 
ened this to "Nappy." 

Others whom we just cannot slight 
are Walter Bromley, Arthur (Fats) 
Bonnett and Mac Brewer, interior line- 
men, who along with Besley, had never 
played football before matriculating at 
College Park. Brewer and Bonnett, par- 
ticularly the former, did a telling job as 
lacrosse defensemen. 

McQuade, Burger, Hough, Pugh and 
Lanigan went into the Marine Corps 
after graduating from Maryland, and 
did a bit of playing for the famous 
Quantico team of that time. All have 
become colonels with fine war records. 

McQuade, whose son T. J., Jr., now is 
a valued member of the Maryland 
squad, was retired shortly after the 
close of the recent war because of de- 
fective eyesight, but the others still are 
on active duty. 

Pretty Well Scattered 

Burger, who has held many high as- 
signments, now is at Quantico; Hough 
is with the Combat Service Group of 
the 2d Marines at Camp Lejeune, N. C; 
Pugh is stationed at the Marine Corps 
Air Station at El Toro, Calif., and 
Lanigan is at the Naval Operations 
Base at Guantanomo, Cuba. 

Groves, who was in the Marine Corps 
for a year, is director of the regional 
operations office of the Air Transport 
Association in New York. He was in 
charge of the National Airport at 
Gravelly Point when it first opened. 
Branner, whose daughter Patricia is a 
soph at Maryland, is an insurance man 
in Baltimore and Hall, whose son Buzz 
is one of the Terps top lacrosse players, 
is in business at Annapolis and doesn't 
miss many of the Old Liners' big events.

THE cross country team (Coach Jim 
Kehoe) has been undefeated in 
dual meet competition for the past two 
years and has also won the Southern 
Conference Cross Country Champion- 
ship for the past two years in a row. 
This year all mem- 
bers of last year's 
undefeated team are 
back with the excep- 
tion of Herb White, 
who graduated. In 
addition, the team 
will be supplemented 
by members of last 
year's Freshman 
team which was also 

Leading the candi- 
dates is Bob Palmer, 
a Junior, who never 
lost a cross country 
race since running at 
Coach Kehoe Maryland, and in ad- 
dition won the individual Southern Con- 
ference Cross Country Championship 
twice in a row, breaking the record on 
each occasion. 

Following close behind Palmer is 
Lindy Kehoe, Coach Kehoe's brother, 
Jim Umbarger, Southern Conference in- 
door half-mile champion last year, Ty- 
son Creamer, former national high 
school cross country champion, and Jim 
Ruckert, who came along fast last year 
outdoors and is expected to be a hard 
man to beat. 

Joe Grimaldi and Howard Umberger, 
members of last year's championship 
team, are also available. 

In addition Coach Kehoe has several 
excellent prospects coming up from last 
year's crack Freshman team, Al 
Buehler, Bob Browning, Jim Harris, and 
Gus Meier. Indications are that some of 
last year's Varsity men will have a 
tough time keeping some of the above- 
mentioned boys from taking their 
places on the team.

In the Southern Conference only 
South Carolina, The Citadel and Mary-

Cadets and the Gamecocks come up 
with good boxers, experienced, well 
trained and well coached. 

Maryland is not looking for any easy 
matches for the reason that there is 
nothing to be gained by boxing mediocre 

Singularly some of the smaller 
schools that do not feature top teams 
in other sports do put out with good 
boxing teams. 

Service Teams Eligible 

The new NCAA rule book now per- 
mits matches with Armed Services 
teams provided the latter agree to box 
under collegiate ring and eligibility 
rules. Accordingly Maryland has en- 
tered into a home and home agreement 
to box the Quantico Marines, opening 
this year in Quantico. The Marines, 
coached by Freddy Lenn, are well 
drilled, managed and presented on a 
parity with collegiate teams. 

It ought to be a good match and a 
colorful series. Speaking of the ar- 
rangement with Quantico, Major Gen- 
eral Lemuel C. Shepherd, commanding 
at Quantico said, "I am personally most 
enthusiastic about the boxing arrange- 
ment between Maryland and Quantico. 
Coach Lenn informs me that the Marine 
team will be capable to box under col- 
legiate rules and he too is enthusiastic 
about the schedule with Maryland." 

Coach Heinie Miller, for Maryland. 
says, "Quantico always has good 
teams. So does Maryland. The Marines 
will be tough but no tougher than the 
opposition we have been encountering 
in the past two years from such teams 
as South Carolina, the Citadel. Miami.

The Dixie Tournament will very 
likely again take place at Columbia, 

. beginning on March 23rd, while 
the NCAA National tourney is expected 
to go at Baton Rouge, La., beginning 
March W. 

The above schedule affords oppor- 
tunities to see the Terp varsity in ac- 
tion four times at College Park, once 
in Washington and once in Quantico. 
while the freshmen show once at Col- 
lege Park and once at Charlotte Hall. 
Another frosh meet is being sought. 

The Terp freshmen will again be 
coached by Frank Cronin. Both Cronin 
and Eddie Rieder will also act as assist- 
ant varsity coaches. 

The regular varsity season will be 
preceded by the Physical Education 
boxing program as well as by the usual 
intramural tournament. 

Array of Talent 

Among the candidates for this year's 
varsity team are all of the l!i49 squad, 
less Eddie Rieder ( and what a pair of 
shoes that baby left to be filled!). 

Mont Whipp and Georgie Fuller will 
vie for the heavyweight spot. Pat 
Walker, from the lacrosse squad, would 
also be very welcome here. 

At 175 you have Harry Swaizwelder. 
Bob Smith, Bob Hafer. Jim Moeller. 
who was one of the best boxers at Fair- 
fax Hi intends to go out for 175. 

At 165 Bob Gregson will be in for 
his senior year, while Angel Bavosa 
and Johnny Maitone may also go after 
this weight. Maitone starred on last 
year's freshman team. 

The 155 pound bracket is also availa- 
ble foi- Maitone and possibly Rowland 
Hyde may be hefty enough for this 
class. Ray Hill will also make a bid for 
this billet. The same may be true of Hon 
Oliver. George Hauter and Bill O'Brien. 
Davey Lewis, fresh out of the Army 
may be ready for a shot at the 155 
pound class or Davey may be down to 

At 145 Oliver, Hyde. Hauler. O'Brien. 
Barney Lincoln, Paul Kostopoulos, Ver- 
non Russell. Albie Thompson, George 
Psoras. Dennis Focas. and Ken Davis 
will be around with the old "gym try." 
some of them depending on whether or 
not they have grown into that weight 
over the summer. 

At 136 Paul Kostopoulos will make a 
bid and Al Salkowski has also expressed 
a desire to resume where he left off two 
years ago. Scott Dye and Ray Moffett, 
winners on last year's freshmen team, 
may also be ready. 

-I 60 V 

At 130 Spencer Hopkins, Southern 
champion, will be out again. Others 
thus far listed for this class are Al 
Glass, last year's 125 pounder. Joe 
i Bod) Dulin, and Eddie Crandall. 

At 125 Spencer Hopkins may try for 
the lighter weight (last year he could 
have made it easily). Al Glass may go 
for 125 again. The same is true of Red 
Dulin and Eddie Crandall. Danny 
McLaughlin would be a red hot number 
at this weight if he'd decide to round 
out his senior year by making a bid for 
a title. Danny's a very good boxer. 
Little Freddy Carnesale. from last 
year's frosh, may also be on deck. 

Krohmen Candidates 

Some very fine talent will make a bid 
for the freshman team. 

Calvin Quenstedt, star heavyweight 
from Charlotte Hall is rarin' to go and 
so is John Rauch, Charlotte Hall. 17". 

•'Quenstedt." says Coach Miller, 
"may develop into a national champion 
and all-time collegiate ring great. He 
appears to have what it takes to make 
a better than good ringman." 

Rudy Mechelke, 210 pound ex-Marine 
Corps boxer will also try' for the frosh 

Alberto Muina-Bonis, crack Cuban 
middleweight from Charlotte Hall is 
also on hand and so is Leonard Weiss, 
145, another Charlotte Hall boy who, 
however, may decide to limit his activi- 
ties to lacrosse. 

Tom D'Angelo is another prospect at 

Eddie Frush. son of Danny Frush, 
star Baltimore pro featherweight who 
boxed three world champions, is like- 
wise on deck sighting in on what his 
daddy believes will be an outstanding 
collegiate ring career. He's a 155 

Other freshmen who have put in 
their names are John L. Sullivan (a 
fairish sort of a name for a ringman i, 
George Black. Edward Kain, Albert 
Essey and Leroy Schwartz, as well as 
Edward Palamara, Bill Owings, John 
Crawley and Bob Kingsbury. 

At Maryland it is never smart to 
overlook what might come out of the 
intramural tournament, bearing in 
mind that such scintillant ring cham- 
pions as Newton Cox. Frank Cronin 
and Eddie Rieder each laced on their 
first pair of gloves at College Park as 
did several other good Maryland boxers 
such as the late Georgie Pyles and Izzy 
Leites as well as Bob Bradley. Nate 
Askin and the Dorr brothers.

His ears won't stand for trimmin' 
He's not afraid of the big lough ones 
But he runs like hell from the wimmin.

C. Griswold, Coach, 
has announced: — Massachusetts Insti- 
tute of Technology, Army, and Coast 
Guard Academy will be met at Boston. 
14 January 1950; Naval Academy at 
Annapolis, Md., 25 February 1950. Col- 
lege teams of the metropolitan area of 
New York will be met in the Metro- 
politan Area Championship Matches in 
New York on 25 March 1950. 

The 1948-1949 season was a very suc- 
cessful one for the varsity team. It won 
all matches in which it was entered, 
including the District of Columbia 
Championship Tournament, the New- 
York Metropolitan Area Championships, 
the United States Aggies Gallery Rifle 
Championships, Maryland Rifle League 
Championship, Middle Atlantic Intercol- 
legiate Rifle League Championship, and 
the National Rifle Association National 
Intercollegiate Championship Match. 
The latter, a nation-wide match, was 
won with a new record score, and gave 
to the University of Maryland Varsity 
Rifle Team, the title of "National Inter- 
collegiate Rifle Champions of 1949." 
Members of this championship team 
were: Melville D. Bowers; Emanuel 
Briguglio, Arthur E. Cook, Thomas L. 
Taylor, and James M. Wells. Other 
team members who won their varsity 
letters were: Thomas J. Ashe, George 

D. Bailey, Robert B. Jordan, James D. 
Maxwell and Howard J. Waters. 

Arthur E. Cook, the consistently high 
scoring member of the team also won 
other national and international honors. 
He won the Small Bore Rifle Champion- 
ship in the 1948 Olympic Games, held 
at London, England, the 1948 National 
Open Small Bore Championship, and 
was selected by the National Rifle Asso- 
ciation as a member of the 1949 All- 
American Intercollegiate Rifle Team. He 
had previously been selected for the All- 
American Intercollegiate Team for the 
years 1947 and 1948. In the July 1949 
tryouts, he won a place on the team 
which will represent the United States 
in the International Matches to be held 
in Argentina in November 1949. 

Melville l». Bowers and Thomat I 

Taylor were selected for (lie second All 

American Team for 1949, but unfortu- 
nately the team this year will bi' with- 
out tile services Of these two top rank- 
ing members. Thomas L. Taylor has 
graduated and Melville I). Bowers has 
transferred to Massachusetts institute 

of Technology. The team squad, how- 
ever, has several men who possess the 

potentialities of developing into capable 

replacements, so despite this loss the 

team should again this year bo a strong 

contender for top honors in the inter- 
Collegiate field. 

The Freshman Team schedule has not 
been completed, but one trip has been 
arranged to meet the Naval Academy 
plebes at Annapolis, Maryland on 11 
February 1950. A number of other 
matches with teams of comparable rank 
will be scheduled. 

Several promising young shooters are 
in the Freshman class, and it is believed 
that a strong team can be developed. 


^^ Krouse and some fifty young- 
aspirants are planning a rugged cam- 
paign, after last season's brilliant 7 and 
1 record. 

Krouse has reason to feel optimistic. 
All of last year's

cept Captain Bob

men include: Ray

THEY TELL tu about a Texan who. 
upon being ■elected for promotion 
to Major General, turned down the job 
because he always wanted to wear just 
that lone star. (Texans arc 1 ike- that.t 

Texans art- like this, too. There was 
to be a public hanging of a horsethief 
in Texas. The scaffold had been erected 
out on the lone prairieeeee and a u<xid l> 
crowd had come out on horsehack and 
in buckboards. "Lafe." said the sheriff, 
"before I spring the trap is thar suthin' 
you'd like to say?" 

"Nope, sheriff," replied Lafe, "spring 

Commotion from the back of the 
crowd as a fellow, waving his arms, 
made his way toward the scaffold with. 
"Mr. Sheriff, if the gentleman now oc- 
cupying the platform does not wish to 
make use of the speaking time allotted 
him, I'd like to say a few words while 
this vast crowd is here. I'm running for 

"Sheriff," said Lafe, "if it's all the 
same to you, would you mind springing 
the trap first and letting that so-and-so 
speak later. I've heard him before!" 

Texans are thisaway, too. Traveling 
man stopped at a house on the prairie 
occupied by a Texan sitting up close to 
the fire. Cold, howling wind. The travel- 
ing man noted five round holes cut in 
the door. The wind whistled through the 
holes and chilled the room. 

"It would help a lot," suggested the 
traveling man, "if you plugged up those 
five holes in the door." 

"Stranger," said the Texan, "see them 
thar five cats asleepin' in the corner? 
When I want them five cats to git out 
they git through them thar five holes." 

"Couldn't you plug up four of the 
holes," said the traveling man, adding, 
"that would cut the cold wind down by 
eighty percent. The cats could single 
file through the one open hole." 

"Stranger," drawled the Texan, spit- 
ting contemptuously into the fire, "when 
a Texan says Scat! he means scat." 

Big "M": "Shave and massage." 
Barber: "I understand you've been 
going out with my wife." 

"Hig "M": "Just make it a massage." 

Murphy: "Has anybody seen me 


Riley: "Sure, Murphy, ye've got it 

Murphy: "Right, and I have, and 
a good thing ye seen it, or I'd have 
gone home without it." 

Here's the best story out of World 
War II. 

Professor of Knglish at a landlocked 
seat of higher learning received a letter 
from the Navy Department and "how 
would the Professor feel about accept- 
ing a commission a^ a commander, re- 
serve, temporary, specialist, for the 
purpose of teaching Knglish at a NaT] 
pre-flight school." The Professor would. 
He accepted. In due time he received 
orders to report at the Navy Yard, 
Boston. There he found a salty lieuten- 
ant pacing the quay wall. 

"Are you Commander John S. Phillips, 
Jr.?" asked the lieutenant. 

"I am." replied the professor. 

"You're late sir." said the Lieutenant, 
"we've been waiting for you. Get on 

So the Professor boarded the ship, 
took violently seasick and stayed that 
way until the ship pulled in at an Eng- 
lish port. Then he learned that he was in 
command of the ship. He remained sea- 
sick all the way hack. 

Upon arrival in Boston he spotted a 
red faced, seagoing Commander, pacing 
the dock. 

Weary and worn out the bedraggled 
professor staggered down the gangway. 
The red faced Commander roared, "Are 
you Commander John S. Phillips. Jr.. 
Naval Reserve?" 

"I am." weakly murmured the wobbly 

"So am I," roared the Commander, 
"same name, same initials, same rank. 
Now if you think for one minute that 
you thoroughly snafueed my ship, wait 
until you take a look at your blinkety- 
blank English class at Chapel Hill." 

(At that the sailor probably made 
more of a mess of it than the professor. 
The latter at least had sense enough t<» 
go to bed.)

From His Excellency 


Governor of Maryland 













to Friends and Alumni of the University of 
Maryland in this holiday season. 

The spirit of cooperation shown by the Alumni 
of the University, is one that mirrors their faith 
in the University as an integral part of the con- 
cept of public education in the State. 

i onstant improvement of the University of 
Maryland as the crownstone of our educational 
system is a purpose well worth embracing, be- 
cause the leadership of our State and its future 
rest so largely in the hands of University 

In working for this purpose, the University is 
dedicated to giving its students sound knowledge 
and to enhancing their ability to think effec- 
tively. Therefore, we are determined to see it 

In industry, in agriculture, in the professions, 
and in government. Alumni of the University of 
Maryland have taken important places. Their 
contribution to the leadership of our State 
demonstrates the worth of their training. 

Conscious of the quality of this leadership, it 
is fitting to remind ourselves in this holiday 
season of the duty of preserving our democratic 
way of life as we strive toward those ideals 
which gave light to our civilization.

Mr. S. Klaus, that is. 

WELL, HERE it is Christmas 
with 1950 just around the 
corner. With the holiday season comes 
all the usual good will and, in some 
cases, nostalgia. 

It is a season that makes for friend- 
ships and tends to wipe out old scores 
and cynicisms, emphasizing peace on 
earth, good will toward men as well as, 
yes, there is a Santa Claus. 

That Christmas spirit is hard to 
defeat. Years ago some cynic started 
S. P. U. G., the "Society for the Pre- 
vention of Useless Giving." It got some 
publicity and then died the death of a 
spider monkey. More apropos was the

remark of a fellow we knew, "I had a 
very unhappy childhood; at Christmas 
I received only USEFUL gifts." 

Even where it is impractical Christ- 
mas twangs away at the heartstrings. 
Only a few years ago we heard fellows, 
who this year will be cussing snow, 
sleet and cold, bemoaning their fate on 
Christmas day as they basked in the 
balmy atmosphere of palm studded 
Hawaii. Maybe they were lucky to beat 
the Eastern winter but they didn't 
think so. They made with encore after 
encore of "I'm Dreaming of a White 
Christmas." This Christmas probably 
some of them will recall, with incident 
nostalgia, that other Christmas under 
the palms. They might even say that 
they long to be back there but deep 
down in their hearts they wouldn't 
mean it. 

Christmas is world wide, variously 
celebrated in one way or another. 

As we celebrate it, it is an importa- 
tion from Germany direct as well as 
from that country via England. The 
Germans celebrated the annual visit of 
the Christ Child, aided by "Sankt 
Nickolaus," "der Weihnachtsmann"

(the Christmas man), who erected 
Christmas trees and decorated them 
with baubles and candles. 

When German horn Queen Victoria 
of England married German born 
Prince Albert, Christmas as we cele- 
brate it today began to make its ap- 
pearance in England. Thence our | 
ent form of Christmas came to the 
United State-, and "Sankt Nickolaus" 
became Santa Clans or Saint Nick. 

A minister in a small town in Ohio 
i credited with having erected the first 
candle studded Christmas tree in the 
United States. Townspeople threatened 
to lynch him for worshiping lights dur- 
ing the sacred Christmas season. But 
old Santa overcame those early Christ- 
mas cynics and skeptics just as he 
licked S.P.U.G. in later years, whether 
or not you are going to wear that 
atrocious purple and orange necktie! 

Here at the University of Maryland 

"I hale lo be associated with this College 
Park pressure group, but what can you do?" 

we have an almost daily reminder of a 
link with the importation of Christmas. 
For years on end Germans sang a trib- 
ute to the Christmas tree,

Christmas sermon in which In- (nought 
out that the literal translation of Un- 
sung of the herald angels at Bethlehem 

was "Peace on earth to men of good 

will." the intimation being that there 

was no Bong of peace to men who were 

not of good will. We wouldn't know 
about the correctness of the translation 
a-, it is generally accepted hut if it was 

a limited wish for peace to all men we 

feel that old Santa Claus licked that 
one too. 

Probably the greatest tribute ever 
written to Santa Claus and the spirit 
the twinkle-eyed old boy represents was 
contained in the famous "Yes, Virginia, 
there IS a Santa Claus" letter of Sep- 
tember, 1897.

The above foto comes to "MARYLAND" 
readers from Lieutenant Colonel Bob 
Walton, Maryland '38, now with the United 
Stales Forces in Vienna, Austria. This 
crippled Austrian tot lives with a four year 
old sister and mother in a war-smashed, 
cold, 350 year old building in Vienna. This 
baby is typical of thousands of orphaned, 
crippled and undernourished Austrian 
youngsters. This is a far cry from the gay 
and waltzing Vienna of song, story and 
movie and shows the type of youngsters for 
whom Bob Walton voices the appeal appear-

or glorious. Neither are war's aftermaths of 
which the above is a convincing example. 

Said Lieutenant General Geoffrey

"For the past four years, American 
personnel stationed in Austria have 
staged Christmas parties for Austrian 
children and needy people. In the years 
immediately following the war, our

adults in hospitals and institutions. The 
good will that has accrued to the Amer- 
ican people because of this enormous 
effort is invaluable. 

"This year," the General went on to 
say, "our problem is slightly different. 
Austria, by its own magnificent effort 
and through the generosity and co- 
operation of the United States, has made 
remarkable strides toward economic

So Says Dr. Byrd In His First Appearance As Convocation Speaker. 

University President Stresses Value of 
American Civilization, and English 

By Harvey L. Miller 

FOR THE first time in the history 
of the University of Maryland. 
Dr. H. C. Byrd, the University's Presi- 
dent, was the chief speaker at a Uni- 
versity Convocation, when he addressed 
an audience that packed Ritchie Coli- 
seum for the 1949 Fall Convocation. 

His address might well have been 
termed "a short report on the Univer- 
sity, present and future." 

The program had been planned as a 
sort of orientation ceremony with each 
of the ten College Park deans making 
short addresses. However, they pre- 
vailed upon Dr. Byrd to speak. At past 
ton vocations it had been the custom to 
build the program around a great 
"name" speaker. 

Beyond The Campus 
Dr. Byrd Bet forth how even those 
familiar with the University today 
mijrht fail to appreciate the wide geo- 
graphic scope of the school's activities, 
far beyond the limits of the campus at 
College Park and the professional 
schools in Baltimore. He pointed out 
that every county in Maryland is bene- 
fited by some local instruction or edu- 
cation supplied by the University and 
that classes are conducted at such 
points as the Pentagon in Virginia and 
Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, 
not to mention the overseas educational 
centers in Berlin, Munich. Nurnberg. 
Frankfurt. Wiesbaden, Heidelberg, 
Zurich and Paris. 

"Our University." Dr. Byrd stated, 
"is more broadly organized than any 
university in America." 

Dwelling on the University's service 
t'i the people of the State of Maryland. 

Dr. Byrd cited, as just one example, the 
fact that every carload of apples, 
peaches or strawberries shipped from 
the Old Line State's Eastern Shore is 
inspected and passed by University of 
Maryland inspectors to the satisfaction 
of the Federal Government and the rail- 
roads as a protection to farmers, ship- 
pers and consumers. 

Guardian of Health 

"Every bottle of milk placed on a 
Maryland doorstep is guaranteed as to 
purity and cleanliness by a unit of the 
University. State authorities have as- 
sured me," Dr. Byrd said, "that thanks 
to this service there has not been a case 
of bovine tuberculosis in Maryland in 
the last ten years." Prior to the present 
system of inspection such cases were 
not at all uncommon. 

The speaker pointed out that such 
100% services contribute to the State 
far beyond the possibility of monetary 
evaluation. "In some departments of 
the State of Maryland," Dr. Byrd con- 
tinued, "the University is actually re- 
turning annually to the people of the 
State more money to those state depart- 
ments and units than the State of 
Maryland has appropriated for the Uni- 
versity since the beginning of the 

"That statement," Dr. Byrd went on 
to say, "has often been made and has 
never been questioned." 

Dr. Byrd also mentioned the tremen- 
dous value of the University to the 
state of the various medical and dental 
schools and clinics of the University 
that have done immeasurable good for 
Maryland children and adults. 

He spoke of the laboratory and re- 
search work done by the University 
units all over the State. 

Then addressing his remarks pri- 
marily to undergraduates. Dr. Byrd em-

phasized the tremendous current val 
to the world of mastery of English. ' 
is well," he said, "to concentrate 
some profession, but you must augme 
al) you learn in any field of educati 
and endeavor with command of t 
English language. You can, in afl 
years, miss that more than any part 
your education. You will need go 
English to be able to discuss or proj< 
your education in later life. 

"The English language," Dr. By 
went on to say, "is the tool with whi 
you will sell people of the other natio 
our ideals and the American way 

Dr. Byrd stressed that America's i 
ture is in a large measure based up 
what we have accomplished in the pi 
and studies of the past and, in tr 
premise, he emphasized the tremendo 
value to world leadership today of t 
study of the History of Americ 
Civilization, a major subject at Mai 

U. S. Is Leader 

"Other nations," he said, "are looki 
to us for leadership. Unless we are 1 
miliar with our backgrounds, the caus 
that produce effects, we will not be al 
to sell America in the market places 
the nations." 

"Our program must be sold," I 
Byrd continued, "to the rest of t 
world. No nation has ever succeeded 
doing so. England came closest to 
but without us England would be 1< 

"To sell our way of life," Dr. By 
went on to say, "We must understa 
the American civilization we are selli 
and we must be able, in good Englii 
to put over a convincing sales talk 
that subject." 

In addition, Dr. Byrd pointed out, \ 
must study and understand the custon 
religions, politics, backgrounds and h 
tories of the other nations of the wor 

"Our ideals," Dr. Byrd said "are r

going to be sold by the Government but 
rather by individual citizens of the na- 
tion, the individual business and profes- 
sional men of our country." 

"The job of every student at Mary- 
land," Dr. Byrd went on to say, "is to 
do sufficiently good work so that there 
will be demand for more and more men 
and women capable of rendering the 
services for which they are educated 
here. You students of today are the 
salesmen and saleswomen of tomorrow. 
In your hands and the hands of others 
like you rests the duty of promoting 
throughout the world the American way 
of life and the loyalty to the ideals in 
which we believe." 

Working With Navy 

Dr. Byrd mentioned the close co- 
operation of the University with the 
Naval Research Laboratory at White 
Oak and the establishment at the Uni- 
versity of an institute of fluid dynamics 
to be staffed by the best mathema- 
ticians and physicists in the world, 
some of whom are already at the Uni- 

He did not devote much of his talk to 
the physical growth of the University 
but did mention that among the build- 
ings to be added are chemistry, physics 
and mathematics buildings, a new inter- 
denominational chapel, an addition to 
the women's field house with an indoor 
swimming pool, and an indoor coliseum 
seating 16,000 with a swimming pool in 
connection therewith. 

"Buildings do not make of themselves 
a university," Dr. Byrd said. We have 
got continually to add to what we are 
doing in an educational way, bringing 
in more men, particularly in advanced 

"We had four deans down at Savan- 
nah working with people from all the 
other Southern universities and col- 
leges, planning a great regional pro- 
gram. They said to me when they re- 
turned: 'Those people have nothing to 
offer us and we've got everything to 
offer them.' That's what makes it 

worthwhile — to know that what we are 
offering transcends what others are 

Dr. Byrd told of plans for a new 
$2,500,000 chemical research plant 
which the University may acquire, 
financed through private industry. He 
declined, however, to name the company 
with which "arrangements are about 

The President added, however, that 
the project is almost a certainty. 

Dr. Byrd spoke extemporaneously. 
Concensus of faculty opinion was that

A stirring feature of the program 
was the rendition, by the University of

Howe's immortal "Battle Hymn of the 

"Mine eyes have seen the glory" has 
been heard times without number, by 
listeners without number but, we feel 
bold to say, it has seldom been delivered 
as impressively as Professor B. Harlan 
Randall's combined Glee Clubs pre- 
sented it at Convocation. 

"The little lady in black" who wrote 
the Battle Hymn in 1861, inspired by 
the long lines of Union troops passing 
her Willard Hotel window in Washing- 
ton showed Tin Pan Alleys of World 
Wars I and II how to write a battle 
hymn that has stood the test of the 
years, and Professor Randall's mixed 
chorus has obviously caught, to a 
marked degree, the fire that must have 
inspired Julia Ward Howe eighty-eight 
years ago. 

Musical numbers were also rendered 
by John Walser, well known Washing- 
ton solo baritone. 

Invocation was by the Reverend Lloyd 
Brown and benediction by Howard D. 
Rees. Both are campus chaplains.

27th Homecoming is Huge Success, Attended by dean of 

Alumni, Governor Lane, Senator Tydings, Judge 

Cole, President Byrd and President Bell. 

/.' . Dm til L. Brighton 

Alumni Secretary 

APPROXIMATELY 20,000 persons, 
including alumni, students, faculty 
and visitors, celebrated the 27th annual 
Homecoming Day at College Park on 
Saturday. October 29, 1949. 

Dr. H. Sumter Griffith of Waynes- 

boro, Virginia, a 

graduate of Mary- 
land Agricultural 
College in 1880 and 
the Medical School 
in 1886 proved to 
be the center of at- 
traction. In point 
of years since 
graduation he is 
the Dean of 
Alumni. Dr. Grif- 
fith is a frequent 
visitor on the Col- 
lege Park campus. 
For the Homecom- 
ing trip he left by 
train at midnight 
to Washington, take 
a bus to College Park and walk over 
most of the campus several times dur- 
ing the day. He attended the luncheon 
with 1,500 other alumni, the football 
game with some 18,000 and the evening 
mixer with 800 former students. 

Dr. Griffith left late in the evening 

Mr. Brigham 
to ride a chair cai 

for a return trip by coach to his home. 
Before leaving he convinced many that, 
as far as energy was concerned, they 
were older than he. He mentioned that 
he now concentrated his practice on 
night work since the younger doctors 
were not interested in calling on pa- 
tients at late hours. 

Old Timers 

Dr. Thomas S. "Pop" Eader of Fred- 
erick, Dental School 1882, was unable 
t.) attend. As the oldest active dentist 
in America, age 92, he sent his regrets 
and said that he was in a country town 
and many of his patients were in the 
habit of coming to his office on Satur- 
day. "I can't disappoint them," he said. 

Other interesting regrets came from 
Dr. Herbert T. Armstrong, Dental '96, 
of Providence, R. I. who said, "Born in 
1873, I would rather work than play"; 
Dr. Walter B. Yost, '94 Medicine, of 
St. Louis, Mo., "Am afraid I would be a 
stranger in a strange land. No one to 
drive with me and haven't been on train 
in 25 years"; Dr. J. W. D. Harper, '89 
Medicine, of Mathews, Va., "I am too 
old to travel so far as I soon will be 
82"; Dr. George D. Kinne, '87 Medicine, 
Bennington, Vt., "Born Nov. 1, 1860 — 
Too old"; Dr. Albert Wesley Kahle, '83 
Medicine, Houston, Texas, "My age 93 
on September 30— Health O.K."; and 
Dr. E. P. Rohrbaugh, 1881 Medicine, 
Casper, Wyo., "still very active at 92." 

Dr. H. B. McDonnell, 1888 Medicine 
and a member of the College Park 
faculty from 1891 until his retiremenl 
in 1938 was very much in evidence al 
all events and a welcome sight to al! 
older alumni. He told some of earlj 
graduates about their shortcomings ir 
his chemistry class. Two who hearc 
about this were classmates Col. Mahlor 
N. Haines '96 of York, Pa. and Cliftor 
E. Fuller '96 of Cumberland. Fuller was 
the first Maryland quarterback. 

Following morning meetings of th( 
six College Park School Alumni Asso 
ciations and the best float parade ir 
University history an alumni gathering 
without equal filled the two large rooms 
of the dining hall for luncheon. Higl 
praise was given the University and th( 
Dining Hall for this feature whicl 
alumni enjoyed as guests of the Uni 

Council Praised 

President H. C. Byrd welcomed th< 
group and praised the work of thi 
Alumni Council. For the University h< 
expressed, "a great debt of gratitudi 
to the Legislature and the Governor.' 
He said, "Though I went to the las 
Legislature with the University's pro 
gram and expect to go to the cominj 
Legislature, I have found it unneces 
sary to call on the Alumni Council fo: 
its influential help." 

Dr. Byrd called this a great compli 
ment to the legislators, many of whon 
were present, since "they quite ap 
parently felt the University was wortl 
supporting without any influence being 
brought on them." 

Dr. Arthur I. Bell, President of thi 
Alumni Council, was introduced by Dr 
Byrd and presided at the luncheon. Ii

sophomore from Elizabeth. N. J. 

his opening remarks he spoke of Presi- 
dent Byrd's achievements and of his 
devotion to ideals. He drew very en- 
thusiastic applause when he added, 
"regardless of what any newspaper 
might tell you." 

Senator Millard E. Ty dings '10 told 
of the ideological war between the 
United States and Russia. He stressed 
the need for education as being greater 
than ever before. The Senator said, "We 
must keep informed and the University 
of Maryland fills that need in Mary- 
land." He concluded, "I hope the Uni- 
versity of Maryland won't rest on its 
great plant, but will move forward in 
the field of education and in those in- 
visible things which mean so much in 
the world." 

Governor William Preston Lane, Jr. 
highlighted the day with his comment 
upon the University and its administra- 
tion. He praised the work of the Uni- 
versity and of Dr. Byrd. To the alumni 
he said, "What the Governor of the 
State has done to aid such institutions 
as the University of Maryland does not 
entitle him to personal credit. He's only 
doing what he ought to do." 

Judge Cole Speaks 

Judge William P. Cole, Jr. '10 wel- 
comed the guests and introduced seven 
other members of the Board of Regents 
of which he is chairman. Dean J. Ben 
Robinson '14, the senior dean in point 
of service, introduced the 15 Baltimore 
and College Park Deans. All were 
seated at the speakers' table with mem- 
bers of the Board of Regents, Mrs. 
Lane, Dr. Griffith, Maj. Gen. William E. 
Kepner, commanding general of the Air 
Proving Ground Command, Eglin Field, 
Fla., and officers of the Alumni Council. 

Members of the 1909 Band were hon- 
ored with a half-time presentation of 
40th Anniversary band keys by Alumni 
President Bell. The five original mem- 
bers who returned from the first band 
of 19, members led the band parade and 
formed the center of the Maryland 
shield in a band formation. Those re- 
turning included Col. 0. H. Saunders, 
Commander John F. Allison, J. C. Mor-

ris, E. R. Burrier and H. R. Devilbiss. 
Special attention was given the re- 
turning reunion classes. The spotlight 
was focused on the class of 1924 cele- 
brating a silver anniversary. More than 
fifty enjoyed a Homecoming night ban- 
quet and a visit from the Governor. 
About thirty members of the '09 Class 
recognized their 40th milestone with a 
pre-Homecoming supper at a College 
Park Inn. The class of '11 met and laid 
plans for a big 1951 affair. A group 
from 1920 also came in for a share of 
the re-gathering with a meeting in the 
new agricultural building.

ning mixer, informal dance and general 
reunion in the dining hall concluded an 
almost perfect day for the largest num-

were convinced the stage is set for a 
great alumni and University future. 


CLASS OF 1924— OCTOBER 29, 1949 
By Aubrey St.C. Wardwell 

The sun came over the hill. It was a 
brilliant sun after the night before and 
a dreary morning. Came the night and 
Maryland had defeated a strong and 
able Carolina football team. It was 
nearing Hallowe'en, and as Mr. Shakes- 
peare said, "It was the bewitching hour 
of midnight when churchyards yawn 
and Hell itself breathes out contagion 
to this world. Now could I drink hot 
blood and do such bitter deeds as the 
day would quake to look on." (Hamlet.) 

Under these conditions, the class of 
1924 decided to hold a reunion. A pri- 
vate dining room was made available in 
the University quarters on the campus. 
The dinner was delicious, thanks to 
Dave Brigham, our Alumni Secretary 
and Robinson Lappin, Sarah Morris and 
others. Colonel Jack McQuade, my ex- 
roommate, football pal, and distin- 
guished hero of the Marine Air Force 
in the Pacific, acted as Chairman of the 
meeting. We all think he did a splendid 
job. Also present was his wife and son, 
who is now a linesman on Maryland's 
great football team this fall. 


Charles V. Koons of the Class of 1929 and 
■ he College of Engineering was named 
President of the General Alumni Association 
and its Executive Council at the first session 
of the 1949-50 governing body. Three repre- 
sentatives from each of the School and 
College alumni organizations met in Balti- 
more on November 12 to plan alumni activi- 
ties for the year ahead and to elect their 

Chosen as Vice-Presidents were Dr. Wil- 
liam H. Triplett. who is also President of 
the Medical Alumni Association and Mrs. 
Hazel Tenney Mackert Tuemmler, now en- 
tering her third term as President of the 
Home Economics organization. The addi- 
tional Vice-President was recommended by 
the Nominating Committee and unanimously 
approved by the Council. Mrs. Tuemmler 
will have the responsibility of directing and 
coordinating all alumnae phases of the gen- 
eral program. 

For the past two years Mr. Koons has 
been Vice-President of the Alumni Associa- 
tion and served also as President of the 
Engineering Alumni Chapter. He has had a 
long standing interest in the University and 
its Alumni Associations. He followed a de- 
gree in Mechanical Engineering with a Law 
degree at Georgetown and a degree of Juris 
Doctor in 1935 from the Georgetown Gradu- 
ate School. Mr. Koons has practiced law in 
Washington. D. C. since 1937 and has been 
professor of law at Georgetown since that 
time. He was a Major in the Army Air 
Corps during World War II and is a member 
of Sigma Nu Fraternity. He is also honored 
with membership in O.D.K. and Tau Beta 

Things moved along in a nice manner. 
Colonel Jack asked the various mem- 
bers of the Class as he called their 
names, to stand up and briefly state 
their occupations. Of a sudden there 
was a call and in came Dr. "Curley" 
Byrd, Governor and Mrs. Win. Preston 
Lane, Jr. of Maryland, and Miss Adele 
H. Stamp, our beloved Dean of Women. 

Short speeches were in order. Taylor 
"Mane" Rowe of Richmond, Virginia. 
persistently interrupted the Governor 
'u -tate that he was sure he would be 
in office after 1975. There was a splen- 
did turnout and after twenty-rive years, 
n was amazing, hut encouraging, to 
see the youthful appearances of the 
members of the Class, their wives, 
sweethearts and sons and daughters. 

To mention the names of those who 
were present would take too much 
space, but in addition to Sarah Morris, 
our Class President, and Jack McQuade, 
I would like to make reference to our 
Pal "Lover* 1 George Lucky. He was 

BBing with Us sweet nice wife, and 
making Inquiries as to the cost of baby

for me to have had the honor of serving 
as your President in 
the formative stages 
of our reorganized 
Alumni Association. 
A grand choice has 
been made and right 
now I want to pledge 
our new President, 
C. V. Koons, every 
possible ounce of 
support in my power 
to offer. We have 
the potential of a 
much greater and 
much more far 
reaching alumni ma- 
chine. You can be 
sure I, and many 
alumni like me, will do our utmost to 
guarantee its success as an important 
factor in furthering our University of 

I cannot leave behind me without an 
expression of appreciation the efforts, 
support and inspiration offered by 
members of our Board of Regents. The 
citizens of our State of Maryland, the 
public in general, and even many of our 
alumni are not properly cognizant of 
the functions of the Board of Regents 
of our University of Maryland. Biased 
articles based on limited and slanted in- 
formation have created a false impres- 
sion concerning the University, the con- 
trols under which it is operated, and 
the policies which determine its future. 
I feel it important that our alumni be- 
come better informed of the functions 
of the Board and that they give proper 
credit to the important part they play 
in the administration of affairs of the 
University. I should like to point out a 
few of the many pertinent facts - . 

It is interesting to note tbat the 
Board of Regents is composed of out- 

-tainting iik-ii and Women from widely

ments of each so ■ very brief item con- 
cerning these leaders is worthy of men- 
tion hen-. The Chairman is William P.

Court. Stanford J. Rothschild, the 
Secretary, is President of the Sun Life 
Insurance Company of America. Treas- 
urer J. Milton Patterson is Director of 
the State Department of Public Wel- 
fare. These three are from Baltimore. 
Peter W. Chichester of Frederick is 
Sales Manager for Dietrich & Gam- 
brill, Inc. Edward F. Bolter of Middle- 
town is Blaster of the Maryland State 
Grange and Dr. E. Paul Knotts of Den- 
ton is a prominent physician. Charles 
P. BlcCormick from Baltimore heads 
the great McCormick & Co., Inc. with 
its famous spices. Harry H. Nuttle, 
Denton, is an outstanding fruit and 
vegetable farmer while Philip C. 
Turner of Parkton is President of the 
Food Produce Council, Inc. of Balti-

course, has served his State long and 
well and now is Chairman of the Senate 
Committee on Armed Services. Mrs.

Board's budget committee is the only

University a great debt of appreciation.

of the Alumni Association to an ex-

take this opportunity of expressing 
personally my thanks to the members 
of the Board of Regents, to the admin-

many alumni who have worked so 
closely with me to assure the steady 
progress of alumni organization which 
has been realized in the last two years. 


President 3 


By C. V . Kooris 

President. Alumni Council 

IT IS A great personal challenge to 
be elected President of the Alumni 
Council. The opportunities for service 
to the Alumni, the University and the 
People of the State of Maryland are 
many and varied. There is much to be 
done by the alumni to strengthen the 
organization to a point where it can 
discharge its responsibilities and effi- 
ciently perform its functions. 

Dr. Arthur Bell during the past two 
years has given the Association out- 
standing leadership. His devotion to the 
cause of the alumni coupled with tire- 
less energy and a pleasant personality 
have combined during these formative 
days to inspire the Alumni Council. 
Last, but not least, he has contributed 
greatly of his time from an already 
busy professional life. We who have 
been privileged to work with him under- 
stand and appreciate the job he has 
done for the Association and all alumni. 

There is one job which we must 
always keep in mind; namely: the 
Alumni Magazine. It is the greatest 
and best publication of its kind. All who 
combine to make the magazine possible 
deserve the applause and commendation 
of all alumni. More personal notes and 
articles by and about alumni are needed. 
Each alumni reader can definitely help 
in this regard by sending material to 
our Executive Secretary, Dave Brigham. 

Not all of us can assist in the pub- 
lication of the magazine, but all alumni 
can subscribe to the magazine. There 
are presently some 26,000 names on our 


mailing list, yet we have less than 5,000 
subscribers at the present time. What- 
the reason for the minority par- 
ticipation we must find some way to 
increase our subscribers to at least 
10,000 in number. The Alumni Council 
is going to work hard to find a solution 
to this problem. If each alumnus who is 
presently a subscriber would make it 
his duty and his contribution to alumni 
activity to secure one additional sub- 
scriber, our goal of 10,000 subscribers 
would be attained very quickly. It is 
not asking too much — go out today and 
find one additional subscriber to our 
magazine. We will watch for resu! 

Watch this column in the future as 
our objectives are set forth and the 
plans for their accomplishment are un- 
folded. Particularly, find out how you 
can participate in the activities of your 
college chapter and the programs of the 
Alumni Council. It is only by participa- 
tion that we can achieve success as an 
alumni organization. 

The officers and the Alumni Council 
pledge their time and talents to do a 
job for the Alumni Association. We 
only ask that you as an alumnus recog- 
nize your opportunities and help us 
serve when and where you can. In this 
manner we will continue to grow and 
gain in strength.

Sunday, October 88, L949, the Hillan- 
dale Cabin in Hillandale, Md. was the 
scene of a lively reunion of the Terra- 
pin Trail Club Alumni ami families. 
Present were .'!4 adults and 87 children, 
ranging in age from G months to 11 
years. Many of those present really 
made a day of it eating- two meals there 
and even cooking - over the fireplace fire 
in true Trail Club style. 

The Lemmermanns — Henry (1940), 
Glenna Wood (who worked in the En- 
tomology office), Elizabeth, 8, Robert, 6, 
and Wayne, 4, deserve honors for com- 
ing all the way from Penns Grove, N. J. 

Orville (1940) and Willa Mae Davis 
Greenwood and children Donna, 5, 
Philip, 2, came over from Baltimore. 
Also from Baltimore were Dukie War- 
field (who was at the U in 37 and 38) 
and Larry Williams (1940) and their 
two youngsters, David, 6 and Amy, 3. 
They all stayed Saturday night with 
Grace Louise Greenwood Rickard 
(1936) and her husband George. Bruce 
Rickard, 5, and Janet, 2, are lively 
young ones. It must have been quite a 

Eleanor Cooley Robbins (1938) the 
founder and first president of the Trail 
Club in '37 was busy with the youngest 
attendant, Jane, 6 months. Chandler S. 
Robbins, her husband is an ornithologist 
and the two reportedly met at an Audo- 
bon Society meeting. 

Bill and Libby Fiery Doying (both 
1939) arrived in mid afternoon with 
Barry, 6 and Karen, 4. Bill's pipe is still 
a familiar fixture. 

Viola Buhrow Stargel (1938) brought 
her two, Jay, 6 and Sherry Lynne, 3. 

Patty McAnallen Smoot (1943) and 
John (1942) were on hand with Betsy, 
21 months. Both served a term as presi- 
dent of Trail Club. Patty in 1943 and 
John in 1942. Patty's tale of hiking 14 
miles to start a hike during gas ration- 
ing did not make us a bit envious. 

Helen Broome (1943) was present in 
person as well as in a number of the 
kodachrome slides shown. 

Betty Head (1940) and brother Bill 
we were glad to see. Betty works at 
St. Elizabeth's Hospital nowadays but 
it doesn't seem to be affecting her a bit. 

Mary Lynn Mclntyre Warfield (1936), 
Paul, 9 and Lynn, 11 added to the party. 
Mary Lynn never was a Trail Clubber 
but would have been if it had been in 

Gus (Francis P.) Bittinger (at U 
'37 and '38) is one of the few that we 
would have recognized anywhere. We 
hear he is now a contractor. 

Helen Williams who never attended 
the U. but did go along with the Trail 
Club in '37-'38 was there. 

Janet Wyvell Gilbert (1941) always 
the farmer, surprised us by wearing a 
hearing aid. No wonder we had such a 
hard time trying to telephone her. That

Chet Handler also has four children. He 
rushed things a bit with twins, though. 
We were sorry the Handlers did not 
come. They said they wouldn't wish 
their twins off on anyone — but they 
couldn't have been any peppier than 
those Bridge boys! 

Dr. and Mrs. duBuy were warmly 
welcomed by all. He is now at the PHS 
where he started working during the 
war. Their son Bernard, 8, was sport- 
ing a jacket with Nederland on the 
sleeve so we always knew who he be- 
longed to. Yvonne is 4. 

Barbara Phelps Secrest and John 
(1939) had to leave their two sons at 
home. They were sick, as usual. John 
is 5 and Ellsworth is 3. Too bad as 
they did a large share of the work in 
organizing the affair and couldn't spend 
much time at it after all. 

Ruth Jehle Ackerman (1937) and 
Martin had their two youngsters out at 
the cabin all day. Kenny is 3 and Ellen 
is 2. They obligingly napped in the car 
and loved every minute of it. Ruth was 
one of the hard working organizers of 
the affair, too.

Club, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Komoroski, 
come out for a while. With them were 
Ruth Lodge and Herbert P. Stack, 
members of today's Trail Club. We hope 
i hey took home a lot of ideas for places 
to go hiking. 

A little gossip now about members 
who could not be present. Gina Calver 
Swanson, president in 1938, is in Long 
Beach, Calif. Her husband is a Navy 
man and she has three children. Jane 
Showacre (1940) is working at P.H.S. 
in Bethesda. Ned Oakley and Marianne 
Bioore were married some time ago. 
They have a two-year-old and recently 
returned to the Washington area from 
Long Beach, Calif. Howard and Anna- 
belle Owens are living in Greenbelt, 
Md. Anna Lee Mudd works for Plant 
Industry in Beltsville. Verlin and 
Maryan Donn Smith are living in 
Vienna, Va. and have two sons, Lin, 6 
and another boy 6 months old. Hal 
Moore has just been married. He and 
Jack are in real estate business in D. C. 
We had a nice letter from Mary Boggs 
Peterson. She, too, has four children 
but is now in Oak Ridge, Tenn. Her 
letter was passed around and enjoyed 
by many who remembered her. Plomie 
Criner Rosti is living in Falls Church. 

After showing a number of Koda- 
chrome slides, it was decided that this 
reunion would be an annual affair. Any- 
one who desires to be added to the mail- 
ing list please contact John Secrest, 
409 Beech Ave., Takoma Park 12, Md. 
or Ruth Jehle Ackerman, 114 Carroll 
Ave., Takoma Park, Md. There are a 
number of regular Trail Club members 
whom we were unable to notify this 
time as we could not obtain addresses, 
or information about them. There were 
lots of photograph albums in evidence, 
as well as the old and new log books of 
the Club. Everyone seemed to enjoy 
looking them over and reminiscing. 


It was sixty degrees below zero as 
the Soviet firing squad commanded by 
Lieutenant Ivan Nockemoff trudged 
through the snow, escorting poor old 
Igor Rongenoff to his death. 

Reaching the outskirts of the village 
of Dustoff , Igor was stood up against a 
ccld stone wall. Then he was divested 
of his boots, overcoat and cap. The 
squad lined up, facing Rongenoff. 

"What a country!" exclaimed the 
poor guy who knew it wouldn't be long 
now, "What a country! Take a comrade 
out in sixty below weather, line him up 
to be shot but first rob him of his 
clothes. What a country!" 

"And what are YOU kicking about?" 
roared Lieutenant Nockemoff, "WE 
have got to go BACK to it!"

Dahlia Society will aid in developing 
new Dahlia varieties making the Uni- 
versity one of the eleven trial grounds 
in the United States growing and scor- 
ing these popular fall flowers. 

Dr. Conrad B. Link, professor of 
Floriculture declared that Maryland 
has received 49 unnamed Dahlia seed- 
lings. Workmen planted three of each 
type along with a number of named 
varieties for comparison. 

Using official score cards, Dahlia 
judges here have scored the new seed- 
lings on the basis of color, form, dis- 
tinctiveness and size of flower, condi- 
tion of stem and foliage, and substance 
of both flower and plant. A new variety 
must receive high scores at more than 
one trial ground in order to be named 
by the originator and become eligible 
for prizes offered by the society. 
Class Of 1911 

Several months before the October 29 
Homecoming at College Park, Col. 
Lindsay McD. Silvester made a sincere 
effort to get the Class of 1911 together 
for the day. Nine members were pres- 
ent, and many of these members 
brought their wives to see the Mary- 
land-South Carolina game and to attend 
the Alumni Luncheon. 

At the meeting held at the Ross- 
borough Inn the following members 
were either present or accounted for 
later in the day: Thos. R. Brooks, J. M. 
Burns, Chas. A. Chaney, H. R. Dcvil- 
biss, J. W. Kinghorne, J. C. Morris, 
L. McD. Silvester, V. K. Trimble, F. M. 
White. P. R. E. Hatton of West Palm 
Beach, Florida, wired his greetings and 
regrets in not being able to be present. 
Silvester was elected president of the 
Class and Kinghorne, secretary. 

This Class has not had a reunion 
since its twenty-fifth in 1936. It was 
decided at this meeting to plan now to 
hold the 40th reunion in 1951. Every 
effort will be made by the Class officers 
and those present at this meeting to 
contact those members who were not 
present and to help in bringing the ad- 
dresses of all members up to date. The 
Class secretary urges members of this 
Class of 1911, whether they graduated 
or not, to write him immediately, giv- 
ing their present mailing address. Drop 
a post card to J. W. Kinghorne, 1365 
Iris Street, N. W., Washington 12, D. C. 

In addition to seeing Maryland beat 
South Carolina 44-7, the "boys" of 1911 
enjoyed a splendid lunch provided by 
the University, together with a dinner 
and dance after the game. Everyone ex- 
pressed appreciation for making this a 
real Homecoming — thanks to the efforts 
of "Curley" Byrd, Dave Brigham, 
Arthur Bell, Bill Cobey, and others. 
Heads Milk Assn. 

J. Homer Remsberg '18 Agriculture, 

for the past two years President of the 
Agricultural Alumni Association, has 
just been elected President of the 
Maryland-Virpinia Milk Producers' As- 

The Maryland-Virginia Milk Pro- 
ducers' Association, which supplies 
metropolitan Washington with between 
85 and 90 per cent of its fluid milk, was 
formed 26 years ago. Mr. Remsberg 
has been a director since 1928. He 
served as first vice president for the 
last 10 years and on the executive com- 
mittee 14 years. 

He began shipping milk through the 
association with his father, the late 
Albert S. Remsberg when it was first 
organized and began shipping on his 
own in 1926. 

Mr. Remsberg, who was a national 
director of the Holstein-Friesian Asso- 
ciation of America for 16 years and 
rt tired last June, has been prominent 
in Holstein breeding circles and his 
herd ranks with the best in the State. 

The Maryland-Virginia Milk Pro- 
ducers' Association is composed of ap- 
proximately 1,600 members who ship an 
average of 145,000 gallons of milk daily 
into metropolitan Washington. A total 
of $24,538,349.55 was paid to members 
of the association for their milk and 
cream in 1948. 

To Lions Post 

R. T. Crump '37 Agriculture, for- 
merly of Frostburg and now living in 
Inwood, West Virginia, was recently 
appointed a Deputy District Governor 
for the Lions International. Formerly 
connected with the Allegany County 
Welfare Board, he is now Resident 
Chemist for a prominent fruit process- 
ing company. While at Maryland he 
was Manager of the Rifle Team and a 
member of both the Student Grange 
and Latch Key Society. 

Paul B. Horn Publishes 

Paul B. Horn '19 Agriculture is now 
Professor of International Trade at 
New York University. His most recent 
book, written jointly with Hubert E. 
Vice of Miami University, is entitled 
"Latin American Trade and Econom- 
ics." It has been published by Prentice-

lives a great deal more comfortably and 
is able to perform tasks with decreased

expanded and his ability to destroy has 
almost exceeded the imagination. 

Advances in the field of medicine are 
best reflected by the increase in life 
expectancy until now one may expect to 

reach the age of sixty-five. This in- 
creased longevity, however, is by no 
means universal, but it is hoped that it 
can be greatly extended. Scientific ad-

Here'i the 'Student's Bulletin" from the Baltimore Medical College, printed in 1896. This come to these pages from Dr. A. W. Stiles. 

230 Front St.. Owego. Tioga County. N. Y. 

-! 16J- 

have been made in an effort to control 

the agents which cause serious infec- 
tion. The earliest specific remedies were 

effective chielly in diseases caused by 

relatively large infectious agents— e.g. 

Protozoa as i" malaria. This was effec- 
tively combated by quinine, whereas, 
the spirochete of syphilis, also visible 
t;> the scientist, was partially suscepti- 
ble to mercury, antimony and the 
salvarsans. It was not until the develop- 
ment of sulfonamide drugs in 1935 that 
tin' next smaller group — the bacteria, 
became vulnerable. Sulfonamides were 
particularly effective against "gram- 
positive" bacteria and especially those 
of the coccal groups. At this stage dis- 
eases such as pneumoccal pneumonia 
and meningitis of various forms were 
effectively controlled for the first time. 

Scientists then turned their attention 
to molds. The development of the anti- 
biotics from molds in the early '40s 
further extended the field of specific 
medication against the "gram-positive" 
bacteria but it showed little effect 
against diseases caused by the gram- 
negative members of the bacilli group. 
Penicillin was developed in the fore- 
front of the antibiotic agents. Sir Alex- 
ander Fleming in 1929 first observed 
penicillin on culture plates. It was not 
until about 1939 that Sir Howard Florey 
added necessary impetus to the signifi- 
cance of Fleming's observation, namely, 
that the extract of molds could be made 
particularly effective in inhibiting bac- 
terial growth. Perhaps it would be bet- 
ter to say that the development of anti- 
biotics was greatly accelerated by the 
fear of war and the realization that in- 
fections follow in the wake of war. 
Penicillin was discovered by the British, 
but its over-all development is an ever- 
lasting compliment to fine team work 
and American ingenuity and scientific 
"know-how." Penicillin was produced on 
a large scale and fortunately in time to 
save the lives of many soldiers who 
otherwise would have succumbed to 
deep-rooted infections. 

Streptomycin, another antibiotic 
agent was first isolated by Waksman 
from the gullet of a chicken, and proved 
effective against an entirely new group 
of bacteria. These are the group of 
gram-negative organisms which in- 
cludes the germ of tuberculosis. Many 
diseases caused by this group of bac- 
teria soon began to yield and today 
scientists are still exploring the range 
of use of this new drug. Unfortunately 
for streptomycin it has certain very 
serious "side-effects" which limit its 
widespread use. It is known however, 
that the effect of streptomycin is only 
slight and of no clinical significance 
against rickettsiae and viruses. The 
agents which produce these diseases 
are smaller than bacteria but larger 
than the viruses. Examples of rickettsial 
diseases are the commonly known Ty- 
phus and Rocky Mountain fevers. 

During the last two years man has 
again returned to the soil for assistance 
and again he has been l'ewarded. Two 
antibiotics have recently been isolated, 
Chloromycetin and aureomycin. They 
have not only successfully combated 
certain infections caused by the gram-

negative bacilli, but have already 
shown themselves to be highly specific 
against all members of the rickettsial 
group so far tested. They have also a 
significant effect on certain virus dis- 
eases. The infections which are now 
very effectively combated include un- 
dulant, typhoid, and rabbit fevers, most 
types of meningitis, and many of the 
more common types of infections in- 
cluding those of venereal origin. Rocky 
Mountain spotted fever which once 
killed about twenty-five per cent of its 
victims is now reduced to a disease with 
little mortality. 

Chloromycetin came from a scoopful 
of earth sent to the United States from 
Venezuela. Scientists at Yale Univer- 
sity, Parke Davis and Company, and the 
Army Medical School soon provided 
basic information. Chemists soon syn- 
thesized Chloromycetin in the labora- 
tory. This was the first time that any 
antibiotic had ever been synthesized on 
a production basis. Aureomycin has not 
yet been synthesized. It has the same 
wide range of action as Chloromycetin 
and was developed along very similar

These chemotherapeutic medicines 
have only scratched the surface of pro- 
tection against virus diseases and have 
not in any way influenced the viruses 
causing encephalitis, poliomyelitis, yel- 
low fever, mumps, measles, and others. 
In view of our present progress one is 
tempted to look enthusiastically ahead 
for still greater progress in the field of 
antibiotic medicine.

(See accompanying text.) 

In summary it appears that man's 
first BUCCeflfl was in the control of the 
larger enemy agents. His efforts have 
extended intermittently within the last 
fifteen years to the field of virus in- 
fections. Information has been gained 
on the growth and life requirements of 
man's smaller enemies. Our knowledge 
of electronics has made it possible to 
view the virus of poliomyelitis, measles, 
and others by the use of the electron- 
microscope which can magnify these 
minute forms many thousand times. 
Their morphology and internal struc- 
ture can now be studied. Other thera- 
peutic links will certainly be added 
which will carry the fight down to the 
smallest of our enemies. Even cancer 
may have some of its secrets unfolded 
through knowledge of the viruses. The 
use of antimicrobial drugs will add a 
great deal to our knowledge and con- 
i ro] of cancer cells. 

The disease next to be controlled is 
uncertain. It is likely that the answer to 
the riddle of poliomyelitis will, at the 
same time, be also the answer to many 
other virus diseases. When this will 
happen cannot now be determined. It is 
not too much to assume that it will be 
coming soon. When the answers are 
revealed they will represent the ac- 
cumulated knowledge and efforts of 
many workers. He who adds the final 
link will have been only one of a vast 
team of devoted servants of mankind. 

The Author 

The preceding article was written by 
Theodore E. Woodward of the Medical 
School Class of 1988. Dr. Woodward 
saw service with the Medical Corps 
from li>-'!4 to 1936 and was a member 
of the United States of America Typhus 
Commission. He accompanied the Scrub- 
Typhus team into the jungles of Malaya 
on a history making expedition spon- 
sored by the University of .Maryland. 
Me was pioneer in the use of Chloro- 
mycetin and discovered the value of its 
use against typhoid. He was in a large 
measure responsible for the control ci 

typhus among American troops in 
World War II and received by a special 
order of President Roosevelt the United 
States Typhus Commission medal "for 
original scientific work." He married a 
classmate. Dr. Celeste C. I.auve. The 

Woodwards live in Baltimore and have 

four children. 


Here's a Maryland success story. 
I. W. Davidson, founder of the Davidson 
Transfer & Storage Company, Balti- 
more, had eight sons, seven of whom 
are currently active in the business and 
very proud of their family success 

From a humble beginning in 1896 
(one horse and "express" wagon, 
operating only in Baltimore), the or- 
ganization has grown to a large, effi- 
cient fleet of almost 500 motor trans- 
port units, traversing many states. 

The Davidson brothers are also proud 
of the fact that they have been respon- 
sible for many innovations which have 
resulted in better motor transport 
service and improved safety standards 
for the entire industry. 

The eighth brother is an M.D. who 
received his degree from the University 
of Maryland and is attached to the or- 
ganization as company doctor. 

Names and offices of the Davidson 
brothers are: — Joseph Davidson, Vice- 
President and General Manager; B. D. 
Davidson, Vice-President in charge of 
Sales; J. I. Davidson, Secretary; H. A.

Division; David Davidson, Manager of 
Operations; Morris Davidson, Manager 
of Washington Office; Oscar Davidson,

AT THE annual meeting of the Na- 
tional Alumni Association held on 
June 3, Dr. James J. McCormick '01 
was chosen to serve a three-year term 
as a member of the Board of Trustees 
of the National Alumni Fund. 

Dr. McCormick 
was born in Troy, 
N. Y., on August 25, 
1875. After receiv- 
ing his elementary 
training in the pub- 
-^ ^H lie schools, he enter- 
ed LaSalle Institute 
in 1890, graduating 
in 1896. During the 
following year he 
taught school in 
Troy. Having de- 
cided to study den- 
tistry, Dr. McCor- 
mick spent one year in a dental office as 
a preliminary to entering the Dental 
Department of the University of Mary- 
land. At his graduation in 1901 he was 
listed on the Roll of Honor. 

Dr. McCormick spent his first year of 
practice in association with Dr. P. R. 
Skinner. In 1902 he opened his own 
office in his home town and during his 
unusually long period of practice has 
steadily grown in stature as a profes- 
sional man highly regarded by his fel- 
low townsmen and greatly respected 
by his fellow practitioners. 

In order to enlarge his sphere of pro- 
fessional usefulness Dr. McCormick 
went to New York each spring and fall 
for twenty-five years to attend post- 
graduate courses given at the Presby- 
terian Hospital by the Dr. H. S. Dun- 
ning and his associates, Dr. Parker and 
Dr. McCaffrey. He was appointed Oral 
Surgeon at the Troy Hospital in 1920. 
In that capacity he served the com- 
munity with marked distinction until 
1!»44 when he was succeeded by his 
close friend Dr. Joseph Godson, a Mary- 
land graduate of the Class of 1917. 

Dr. McCormick served two terms as 
president of the Third District Dental 
Society of the State of New York and 
holds a life membership in that organi- 
zation. He is also a life member of the 
New York State Dental Society. His 
recognition of the responsibilities of the 
dental profession in working closely 
with the medical profession to render 
preventive health services to the public 
is evidenced by his splendid work as 
Chairman of the Rensselaer County- 
Children's Dental Clinic. He holds mem-

Ni'w Journalism Head 

PROFESSOR Alfred A. Crowell 
has been appointed to head the 
Department of Journalism and Public 
Relations in the College of Business and 
Public Administration, University of 
.Maryland, Dr. J. Freeman Pyle, Dean 
of the College of 
Business and Pub- 
lic Administration, 
has announced. 

Professor Cro- 
well, formerly in 
the Department of 
Journalism at Kent 
State University, 
Kent, Ohio, will 
assume his duties 
as professor and 
head of the De- 
partment of Jour- 
nalism and Public 

Relations January 
Prof. Crowell 1( 1950 

The major for students of journalism 
and public relations will offer technical 
courses and a broad education designed 
to fit them for entering professional 
work upon graduation. There has been 
a great demand for this major during 
the basic courses already offered at the 

"The department should afford un- 
usual opportunity for practical training 
and study," Dean Pyle pointed out, "be- 
cause of its proximity to the journalism 
and public relations capital of the 

Professor Crowell has been at Kent 
State since 1944, where he reinstated 
the school of journalism's photo short 
course and gave it a national scope. He 
originated an annual short course for 
industrial editors in 1948. 

Mr. Crowell is author of "Law of 
Press Photography," having begun 
newspaper work as a press cameraman. 
He was managing editor of the Colum- 
bus (Ga.) Inquirer and the Middletown 
(Ohio) Journal 1942-44. 

In 1940 and 1941 he was in the pub- 
licity department of American Airlines, 
Inc., at LaGuardia Field, New York 
City, where he edited the company pub- 
lication, Flagship News. 

He holds a bachelor's degree and an 
M.A. degree in English from the Uni- 
versity of Oklahoma and a Master's 
degree in journalism from the Medill 
School of Journalism, Northwestern 
Un i v e r si ty. 


There has been a rapid growth of 
student interest in the field of Eco- 

nomies, reflecting the urgency of eco- 
nomic problems in our national and 
Internationa] affairs. In the 25 course- 
offering for the current college year, 
individual student-registrations totaled 
5,120. Increased interest has likewise 
me evident on the graduate level. 
The groundwork for the expansion of 
graduate work has been given particu- 
lar attention. This has involved active 
collaboration with the Graduate School 
in the admission of applicants to gradu- 
ate study as well as guiding the study 
of advanced students of the other de- 
partments of the University who are 
offering Economics as one of their fields 
for the M.A. or Ph.D. degrees. At the 
same time the Department has concen- 
trated upon the needs of expanding the 
scope of its graduate program. Special 
attention has been given to the selection 
of well-qualified graduate students, the 
stimulation of the interest by capable 
undergraduate students in the continua- 
tion of their studies into the advanced 
fields, and the development of graduate 
courses within the departmental cur- 
riculum which are more adequate both 
in number and in quality than they 
have been heretofore. 

The research work in the Department 
of Economics, during the current col- 
lege year has resulted in two books and 
several technical articles. Other studies 
are in progress. This work has been 
carried on by the staff members as an 
addition to their regular assignment of 
a full load of work. The Head of the 
Department of Economics has served as 
a member of the Program Committee 
for the last two years of the Academy 
of World Economics, a national organi- 
zation for the promotion of research in 
the field of Political Economy. The work 
of this Committee has resulted in 12 
research papers by well known special- 
ists in various technical and govern- 
mental fields of Economics. These 
papers have been published as articles 
in the recent numbers of "Social 

A promising field of service to the 
State is that of extending our instruc- 
tion beyond the limits of the campus. 
The Department of Economics has col- 
laborated with the College of Special 
and Continuation Studies in offering 
courses at Baltimore, The Pentagon, 
Boiling Field, and Fort Meade. The total 
student-registration in these various 
courses has an approximate number of 
194 for the current college year. There 
has been a notable increase in the in- 
terest of both the staff -members and the 
students in these courses and in the 
progress of this work. The University, 
in this connection, is performing a sub- 
stantial service to the community in 
general and to the servicemen in par- 
ticular who are anxious to continue 
their studies but who find it possible to 
do so only in their own local communi- 
ties and in the evening hours. 

The Department has also cooperated 
in the University's service to the com- 
munity in connection with inspection of 
the work of the Junior Colleges of the 
State of Maryland. A very helpful re- 
lationship between the University and 
junior colleges throughout the State has 

followed. There is every reason to be- 
lieve that this service is highly wel- 
comed and appreciated both on the part 
of the staff members and the adminis- 
trative officers of the junior colleges. It 
redounds to the advantage of the peo- 
ple of the State in a higher perform- 
ance of service which these institutions 
are performing. 

A field of activity for the Department 
which promises to expand relates to 
students from foreign countries who 
apply for admission to our Graduate 
School. Each of these applications is 
given special attention in order that 
those students be selected who will be 
able to pursue their academic studies 
in this country successfully. When the 
advanced study of foreign studies has 
been successful, it has resulted in an 
important contribution by the Univer- 
sity of Maryland not only to the student 
individually but also to the country of 
which he is a citizen. The State of 
Maryland thereby makes a contribution 
to the development of the community of 
nations which is of such vital concern 
to the perpetuation 
of our way of life.

The Head of the Department of Eco- 
nomics, Dr. Carl J. Ratzlaff, has been 
elected to the Board of Directors of the 
Academy of World Economics. He has 
also been appointed to the National 
Council of Pi Gamma Mu. the National 
Social Science Honorary Society. In 
this latter appointment he has the su- 
pervision for this honorary fraternity 
for the State of Maryland." 

Business and Economic Research 
The Bureau of Business and Eco- 
nomic Research under the directorship 
of Dr. John H. Cover, is recognized as 
the laboratory for the practical study 
of business and economic problems. A- 
such, it has three principal functions: 

1. to disseminate information con- 
cerning business and economic 
conditions in Maryland; 

2. to train students in the field of 
business and economic research ; 

3. to make available the facilities 
and to give active research assist- 
ance to interested business firms. 
governmental units, and citizen 
groups within the state. 

Through the facilities of the Bureau, 
qualified interested students can obtain 
practical experience in research work. 
This involves the application of tech- 
niques and principles studied in the 
classroom to actual business and gov- 
ernmental problems. 


Dr. Carl J. Ralzlaff, pictured above, is a 
member of the Board of Directors, Academy 
>f World Economics. He Is also a member of 
[he National Council of Pi Gamma Mu. Na- 
tional Social Science Honorary Society. 

Apprenticeship training and experi- 
ence including laboratory and field 
activity is provided for competent 
students. Graduate fellowships and re- 
search assistantships are offered pro- 
viding stipends. Eighteen students par- 
;icipated in our study of Baltimore 
Dity. Fifty were engaged in a study of 
;he economy of Harford County and of 
reader response to a Harford County 
veekly newspaper. 

Frequently the Bureau has been 
isked to recommend persons trained in 
ts methods of analysis; in the past 
rear these requests have come from 
Federal and State government agencies, 
irivate businesses, and from other simi- 
ar university bureaus throughout the 
Jnited States. 

As pertinent to the present transi- 
ional period in economic and business 
:onditions, the Bureau of Business and 
Economic Research of the College of 
Business and Public Administration re- 
:ently published a study of tendencies 
n the cost of living, an indication of 
he relationship of major components to 
otal prices consumers must pay, and a 
omparison of Baltimore with 58 other 
ities. In addition, important factors 
ire listed which may affect inflationary 
ind deflationary tendencies, and, there- 
ore, the prices of commodities and 
ervices. This study appeared as Volume

Cooperation with Maryland Business 
Concerns and Groups 

By letter and personal visit, and long 
distance telephone, the Bureau has pro- 
vided information to many individuals 
and representatives of groups, — chiefly 
regarding resources, manufacturing, 
transportation, employment, building 
and construction, prices, cost of living, 
business failures, taxation, water pollu- 
tion, and recreation. But, in addition, 
requests regarding identification of ex- 
perts in various fields, and even the 
interest rates on personal loans, and 
analytical methods, have appealed 
among inquiries. 

A special service has been undertaken 
to provide business groups, particularly 
associations of commerce, trade associa- 
tions, banks, newspapers and research 
units of business concerns, with infor- 
mation on request. This originated with 
the reference to the Bureau of requests 
received by local chambers of commerce 
and agencies of the Federal Govern- 
ment. When possible, the data are du- 
plicated to conserve staff time, and kept 
current by supplementary entries. 

Cooperation with Federal Govern- 
ment Agencies 

Close association with technical per- 
sons in the Federal Government has re- 


sulted in mutual advantage. The Bureau 
ved considerable special data 
compiled for it. 

One large state university reports 
that the University of Maryland publi- 
cations are used regularly as text ma- 
terial in advanced courses in statistics. 

Inquiries have been received from 
foreign countries as well as from other 
organizations in the United States as to 
the Bureau's organization, its program, 
and its methods of employing and train- 
ing students. Requests for the Bureau's 
publications have been received from 
more than 50 educational and govern- 
mental establishments in foreign coun- 

Headquarters of the Associated Uni- 
versity Bureaus of Business and Eco- 
nomic Research were established at the 
University in the fall of 1947 with the 
election of the director of the Maryland 
bureau as Secretary-Treasurer. Mem- 
bership of this organization includes 44

*R. GEORGE M. GLOSS, Chairman 
P of the Graduate Area, College of 
ysical Education, Recreation and 
alth, University of Maryland, has 
n requested, because of his interest 
1 leader-ship in the field of visual 
materials as related 
to physical educa- 
tion, to provide an 
article for "See and 
Hear," the interna- 
tional Journal of 
Audio-Visual Educa- 

Ll tion, published at 
/i^H Madison, Wisconsin. 
w«A S During the war 

A 1 I Dr. Gloss served as 
^Ll I a commander in the 
Navy in the fields of 
Dr. Gloss physical education, 

welfare and recrea- 
i. For a time he was in the depart- 
nt supervised by Commander Gene 
mey, and he later served in the 
ith Pacific. 

It has become increasingly appar- 
," Dr. Gloss said, "that there is 
mendous usefulness of all audio- 
ual materials for the teaching of the 
ds of physical education, recreation 
I safety. Through investigation of 
earch studies it has been discovered 
t gestures and body movements are 
far as the human race is concerned' 
er and more direct than the spoken 
rd. Ideas are responded to — more 
ckly understood and retained longer 
n verbalizations couched in the form 
the abstract sounds of speech which 
easily distorted or misunderstood. 

The fields of physical education, 
ety and recreation," Dr. Gloss con- 
ned, "are mostly action-type, that is, 
y are of motion, posture or gestures, 
jrefore, messages regarding these 
best understood, used, and retained 
direct seeing. Teaching in these 
ds should be necessarily of the visual 
ie. The spoken word may reinforce 
se dramatic, real expressions and so 
vies of the sound-type which are 
iplemented by discussion, are the 

most effective form of teaching. With- 
out doubt audio-visual materials are 
tremendously useful, satisfying, and a 
direct means of transmitting favorable 
attitudes, knowledge and imitative re- 
sponses in the fields enumerated above," 
Dr. Gloss concluded. 

Dr. Gloss is engaged in a current 
survey of the field of Semantics as 
pertaining to words and other forms of 
non-verbal communication. This back- 
ground is to be for a forthcoming pub- 
lication pertaining to the use of play 
as a sub-vocal means of communication 
and as a means of creating sympathetic 
understanding of one person toward 

In addition to this there is being ac- 
complished research by Dr. Gloss as 
part of the duty of being the Chairman 
of the Audio-visual Materials Commit- 
tee of the American Association for 
Health, Physical Education, and Recrea- 

Besides the mentioned research Dr. 
Gloss feels that some twenty-seven 
years of teaching seem to truly indicate 
that "seeing is believing."

Mr*. Nathan Wlnalow 03 


By Florence M. Gipe 
Director, School oi Nursing 

WITHOUT a doubt the general 
pattern of nursing education 
has been changed. The direction of this 
change has been carefully mapped by 
at least twenty years of planning by 
persons in the field of general education, 
in medical education, and among mem- 
bers of the Nursing Profession them- 

As early as 1893 following the or- 
ganization of the American Society of 
Superintendents there was felt a need 
for a drastic change from an apprentice 
system of training nurses to a more 
unified program of education and train- 
ing based upon the need for the services 
of the finished product. The sources of 
information depicting this change were 
objective studies; the first of these 
studies was Nursing and Nursing Edu- 
cation in the United States. (The Gold- 
mark Report published in 1923 later 
followed by the report of the Grading 
Report on Schools of Nursing in 1926.) 
In both of these objective reports it was 
pointed out that amends would have to 
be made some time, "for our haphazard 
so called Nursing School system." All 
of us, I am sure, now realize the price 
the American Public has had to pay by 
the present shortage in professional 
nurse power. 

As Abraham Flexner said in his 1925 
comparative study of medical education 
in the United States and in Canada, "the 
direction of change is more important 
than the speed at which it takes place." 
Many nurses themselves are unhappy 
about the change and question the di- 
rection in which we are going. This is 
to be expected; to be sure the same 
unhappiness existed, to some extent, 
among members of the medical pi'ofes- 
sion when the American Council of 
Medical Education sought to find the 
ills that were hampering its members 
from scientific progress. The existing 
hypothesis formulated by Flexner and 
hie associates were proved when they 
concluded that "Medical schools exist 
because disease must be studied, under- 
stood, and controlled, and physicians are 
trained that they may the more in- 
telligently and efficiently prevent, or if 
not prevent, then combat disease." 

At least two external changes have 
been brought about since World War II. 
Changes in medical practice have oc- 
curred and there has been a decided in- 
crease in the Public's request for med- 
ical and health services. These changes 
have demanded an increased knowledge 
of new drugs, new techniques, and for 
the development of new nursing skills, 
and new patterns in nursing service. 
The teamwork concept resulted in the 


demand for professional nurses who are 
capable of leading and of directing less 
skilled personnel in giving total nursing 
care to patients. For this reason, pro- 
fessional nurses must teach at the bed- 
side of the young mother who has been 
directed by her physician to acquire all 
ible information that is necessary 
while she is a patient in the hospital, so 
that she may successfully care for her 
newborn when she returns home. The 
professional nurse must for this reason 
possess a knowledge of the principles 
of Pedogogy, of Psychology, of Eco- 
nomics and of Sociology, aside from her 
basic knowledge of the biological- 
physical sciences and the newer devel- 
opments in nutrition. 

For the minimum amount of total 
nursing care required, at present, ob- 
jective studies claim 65 per cent profes- 
sional care which refers to 50 per cent 
graduate nurse care, 15 per cent stu- 
dent nurse care, and 35 per cent aux- 
iliary service. This is a decided change 
from 1939 when it was found that 90 
per cent of all hospital nursing was 
carried by the student nurses who were 
in the school for the purpose of learn- 
ing to nurse the sick and to teach prin- 
ciples of health in the home. 

The American Public following World 
War II became very alarmed and de- 
manded to know the reason for the 
shortage of nurse recruits. From this 
demand two important studies were 
made in 1948. 

Xirsing For the Future — Esther 
Lucile Brown, Ph.D., from the Russel 
Sage Foundation who made objective 
studies of other professions, Law, Medi- 
cine, and A Program For the Xursing 
Profession by Eli Zingsberg and asso- 
ciates; Columbia University, New 
dates; Columbia University, New York; 
both studies, by and large, reached 
the same conclusion by stating that 
the root of the problem lies with the 
schools of nursing in relation to con- 
trol, finance, faculty preparation cur- 
ricula, library facilities, and conditions 
of work and study. For this reason 
these studies advocated the classifica- 
tion of nursing schools so that prospec- 
tive students might choose with a cer- 
tain degree of safety a school, wherein 
three years of her young life would be 
properly benefited. The approved list 
was to be made available to all high 
schools and colleges. The results, they 
believed, would be manifold for the bet- 
terment of nursing service throughout 
the nation. The American Hospital As- 
sociation endorsed the survey which 
they believed would: 

1. Facilitate planning of nursing edu- 
cation on a regional and national basis. 

2. Furnish information for community 
and state planning programs. 

3. Indicate present needs in Nursing 

4. Identify basic degree and diploma 
programs from which lists of schools 
with certain characteristics could be 

5. Assist in recruitment and in guid- 
ing prospective students to schools best 
suited to their capacities. 

6. Demonstrate what additional funds 
are necessary for nursing education. 

7. Give an analysis of the nations 
nursing education facilities upon which 
to build nursing service for the future. 

On March 10, 1949 national survey 
questionnaires ware sent to all schools 
of nursing that desired to participate In 
the nation's study. Information regard- 
ing the supplied data was checked with 
State Board of Examiners of Nurses 
and in case of University Schools it 
was checked with members of the 
American Council of Education. Re- 
cently a profile rating was sent to the 
Administrative Head of the School sup- 
plying the data with the suggestion 
that the name of the school be pub- 

Many boards of Control of Hospitals 
have objected very strenuously to this 
procedure, but on the face of it one can 
visualize improvement for many schools 
based upon competition and self pride. 

High schools and colleges have been 
undergoing self appraisals and national 
surveys for more than fifteen years. 
Practically all of the larger and middle 
classed high schools now have an ac- 
credited rating. Is it not equally as im- 
perative to have nursing schools classi- 
fied, wherein the preservation of life 
is taught? Is it not the privilege of the 
nursing profession to protect their own 
individual body of knowledge? 

There are many encouraging aspects 
in relation to the recent classification of 
nursing schools. 

1. The interest, cooperation and ap- 
proval of the American Hospital Asso- 

2. The interest and cooperation of the 
American Council of Education. 

3. The cooperation, sympathy and 
recommendations of leaders in the field 
of general education. 

For many years nursing schools 
existed for the sole purpose of supply- 
ing nursing service to the patients in 
hospitals. Now that members of the 
medical profession ai - e requesting the 
nurses to take over duties formerly 
carried by them, a totally different 
situation at once presents itself. A new 
or different aim must be established. 
With a changed aim a new curriculum 
must be built. In carrying out the new 
curriculum or plan, new techniques must 
be learned based upon scientific prin- 
ciples. To develop the product as a use- 
ful entity within our changing society 
better prepared teachers must be pro- 
duced; a new philosophy has evolved 
whether we like it or not. 

"If you'd lake it easier like that practical 
Professor of Agriculture, you'd live longer!" 

Drugs and medicines constitute the chief stock in trade 
of every successful drug store. It is much better to 
establish the drug store as a health center than as a SOUT< - 
of supply for anything and everything. There is an 
occasional store that fills few prescriptions and still makes 
money, but there is no store anywhere that enjoys a 
good prescription business that does not make money. 
It is therefore logical that druggists make every effort to 
get all the prescription business there is to be had. 
Along with competent professional service, high quality 
prescription merchandise should be featured. The markets 
of the world offer no finer pharmaceuticals and biologicals 
than those bearing the Lilly Label. Lilly is our featured line.

The Department of Art is featuring over twenty large paintings by Henry J. Soulei 
nationally known illuslrator and member of Jhe Arl Deparlmenl faculty, in a special one-ma 
show in the Art Department Gallery, in the Arts and Sciences Building from November 2( 
1949 to January 6. 1950. The paintings, most of which are done in oils, are originals for illui 
trations in the "Saturday Evening Post" and the "Lad'es Home Journal." Of special inleres 
will be the large painting (shown above) exhibited in the lobby of the Administration Build 
ing containing a Christmas theme. Mr. Soulen painted this over a plaster of Paris relief for 
cover of the "Ladies Home Journal." The faculty, students and public are cordially invited 1 
visit the exhibit. The gallery is open from 9:00 A. M. to 4:00 P. M. daily, Monday throug 


Maryland, has announced that Mr. 
Hemy J. Soulen, one of the foremost 
Illustrators of the present day, is now 
teaching the Illustration Course, offered 
for the first time at the University. 

Mr. Soulen was horn in Milwaukee, 
Wis., ami now resides in l'hoenixville. 
Pa., where he has his studio-home. A 

wide range of experience characterises 

the extensive background of Mr. Soulen. 
He studied at the Milwaukee Art Insti- 
tute, the Chicago Art Institute and 
under the great Howard I'vle. the late 
Dean of American illustrators. Mr. 
Soulen has to his credit over 2,000 pic- 
tures, many of which are cover paint- 
ings, reproduced by the Saturday Eve- 
ning Post, the Ladies Home Journal, 
the Country Gentlemen, and several 
New York magazines and advertising 
accounts. One of his paintings, repro- 
duced on the cover of the Ladies Home 
Journal depicting the life of Christ, 
was acclaimed as the greatest magazine 
cover ever painted. The original of this 
painting was exhibited at Wanamaker's 
in Philadelphia and drew large crowds. 
Another example attesting to the popu- 
lar appeal of Mr. Soulen's work was 
demonstrated at the Art in Advertising 
Exhibition held at the Philadelphia 
Museum of Art in 1941. In a popular 
poll conducted at the Exhibit, which 
more than 36,000 people attended, Mr. 
Soulen's "Winter Scene" tallied 50 
votes more than its nearest competitor, 
a painting by Norman Rockwell. 

In addition to the exhibits mentioned 
above, Mr. Soulen's paintings have 
been exhibited at the Grand Central 
Galleries in New York, the Philadelphia 
Art Museum, the Chicago Art Institute, 
the Milwaukee Museum, and the Wil- 
mington Academy of Fine Arts. During 
World War II he executed work for the 
American Red Ci - oss and the U.S.O., 
including murals for the Valley Forge 
General Hospital and the U.S.O. Mr. 
Soulen has traveled and painted in 
Europe and a number of countries in 
the Far East. 

The acceptance of a position on the 
Art faculty by Mr. Soulen was due 
largely to his long friendship with 
Professor Wharton.

Sociology Club Makes Recreational 

The tabulation of approximately 
12.000 questionnaires dealing with a 
survey of the recreational needs of the 
children of Prince George's County, is 
nearing completion by the Sociology 
Club, according to William Britt, presi- 

This task, which the club expects to 
complete by February, was begun in 
July. The questionnaires are the returns 
of more than 22,000 which were sent

The University of Maryland now has 
a full time Placement Service for 
graduating seniors. This is one of the 
activities of the Department of Student 
Welfare headed by Geary Eppley. 

Dean Eppley, realizing that this 
year's graduates will be competing with 
the largest graduating classes in the 
history of American Universities for 
fewer jobs than last year, decided that 
Maryland should give its graduates 
equal service with those Universities 
that have central placement offices. 

Placement Service went on a full time 
basis September 1. The director is 
Lewis M. Knebel, last year Field Repre- 
sentative of Defiance College, Defiance, 
Ohio, and previously an executive with 
the Y. M. C. A. Most recent posts were 
in Providence, Rhode Island and Phila- 
delphia, Pennsylvania. Mr. Knebel was 
brought here by Dean Eppley as Assist- 
ant Dean of Men in Charge of Place- 
ment Service. 

The new service aims to coordinate 
and supplement the placement assist- 
ance now being given by our various 
colleges and departments and to open 
up new contacts with employers in 
business and industry. The policy of 
Placement Service is to help students 
to help themselves in job hunting. 

Specifically, Placement Service gives 
all graduating seniors a chance to 

register for employment and bring to 
the attention of those registered, job 
openings coming to the Placement Office 
for which they may be qualified. Place- 
ment Service is also conducting a series 
of Job Information Institutes. The first 
was held on Tuesday, November 15 on 
"How to Get a Job." David L. B. 
Fringer, Director — Employment Service 
Division, Department of Employment 
Security, State of Maryland was the 
principal speaker. Jesse Krajovic, 
Maryland '32, now assistant employ- 
ment Manager at Glenn L. Martin was 
on the Panel with Mr. Fringer. The next 
institute will be on Government Service 
and will be held December 13. Place- 
ment Service will also assist the Col- 
leges in setting up on-campus inter- 
views by company representatives. 

This is a service that deserves the 
wholehearted support of every alumnus. 
Each alumnus who is in a position to 
know of jobs that will be open in Feb- 
ruary and in June should notify Mr. 
Knebel so that Maryland graduates will 
have a chance to be considered. Mr. 
Knebel would appreciate having our 
alumni make arrangements for him to 
meet personnel and employment man- 
agers and other business leaders, and 
he would also appreciate the coopera- 
tion of alumni in securing company 
representatives to come to the campus 
to talk with graduating seniors.

Good Luck, Jean! 

Rev. Henry H. Rowland of White 
Marsh, Maryland writes to tell about 
his daughter Marion Jean of the Class 
of '36 in the College of Education. His 
letter reads in part: 

"My daughter Jean (Marion J., as 
you have her listed) Class of '36, writes 
me from Kienyang, Szechwan Province, 

China, to send you dollars from 

her account. Enclosed please find my 
check for that amount. 

"She says not to send 'MARYLAND' 
as you have been doing through me. No 
copies can reach her. The only mail 
that has been going through for months 
is air mail, first class, and that only via 
Hongkong. Now that the Communists 
are approaching Canton and the Na- 
tional Government is moving out to 
Chungking in Szechwan, I am wonder- 
ing when my letters will be coming 
back to me marked 'Service discon- 
tinued,' as they did before I put on the 
envelope 'Via Hongkong.' And then 
what? There will be a way through, of 
course, perhaps via India. 

"Jean is well, supremely happy in her 
work, rural social service and religious 
work under the Methodist Board of 
Missions and Church Extension. She 
will have been in China for three years 
this coming January and hopes to stay 
two more years before furlough. Her 
friends and classmates might be inter- 
ested in a quotation from her last letter 
written at Bishan, near Chungking 
where she has gone for a month's in- 
tensive training in a Mother craft

state university to receive these fellow- 
ships, which are given by Dr. William 
H. Danforth and the Ralston Purina 
Company. The purpose of these fellow- 
ships is to broaden the student's con- 
tacts, to enlarge their horizons, to help 
them make decisions, and to render 
assistance in attaining the Four-Fold 
Way of life: Physical, mental, social 
and religious. This wonderful oppor- 
tunity was given to us for the summer 
of 1949. 

The first two weeks of the Danforth 
Fellowship were spent in St. Louis 
followed by two weeks in a Christian 
Leadership Camp on Lake Michigan. In 
St. Louis we stayed on the campus of 
the beautiful Washington University 
and went each morning to the Ralston 
Purina Co., located in the heart of St. 
Louis. There we obtained firsthand in- 
formation from outstanding men and 
women in the field of Research. We 
were allowed to go behind the scenes 
and see the actual problems encoun- 
tered in operating the largest feed 
manufacturing company in the world. 

Also in connection with the company, 
we visited the Ralston Purina Research 
Farm and the Merchants' Exchange, 
which is the buying and selling agent 
for all feed. At the Research Farm we 
ate like kings and queens, and also 
played the traditional softball game be- 
tween the East and the West. Un- 
fortunately the Western girls edged 
out the Eastern girls by a small mar- 
gin, but we were consoled when the 
Eastern boys won their game. 

Aside from hearing interesting and 
informative lectures on nutrition, per- 
sonnel, and organization, we toured 
such places as the Leppert Roos fur 
coat manufacturing establishment, 
Mavrakos Candy Co., Stix. Baer, and 
Fuller Department Store, and the 
Gardner Advertising Agency, which 
handles the Ralston Purina ads and are 
responsible for the checkerboard signs 
and the Tom Mix radio show. A day 
was spent at Barnes Hospital where 
we observed an operation for cancer. 
There we visited the famous anatomy 
labs and encountered our first cadavera! 

Also the Psychiatric Ward was of par- 
ticular interest. Swift Meat Packing 
Co. was our host on a tour of the pack- 
ing plant, and there we saw the Hoof 
to Table process and ended the day 
with a delicious ham dinner. 

One afternoon was spent touring the 
city of St. Louis and seeing all of the 
places of interest, including the famous 
zoo, the old "Showboat." and the Mu- 
nicipal Opera. 

Our evenings were usually used to 
set acquainted with the girls from 
forty-four states, Canada, and Hawaii 
and to work on our notebooks. One eve- 
ning we saw an exciting Cardinal base- 
hall game out at Sportsman Park. Wi 
also visited the Municipal Opera and 
saw such shows as "Irene," "Bitter- 
sweet." and "Roberta." 

In little or no time two weeks flew 
by, and we found ourselves on the train 
heading for Milwaukee, where we took 
the night ferry across Lake Michigan 
to Muskegon. Mr. William H. Danforth, 
our host, greeted us when we arrived 
af Camp Miniwanca, just outside of 

Shelby, Michigan. We could easily toll 

that ho always puts into practice his 

well-known quotations— two of which 

are as follows: 

"I dare you to be your own self at 
your very best all the time." and "I 
dare you to stand tall, to think tall, to 
smile tall, to live tall." 

The days here consisted of lectures 
on Christian Living and Ethics, Life's 
Kssentials, The Bible and the Ideas of 
God, and Four Fold Development — 
Physical, Mental, Social and Religious. 
Devotional periods were held in the 
morning 1 and Tribal games and sports 
wore played after classes. About sun- 
down the campers filed up Vesper Dune 
for a Worship Service, while we watch- 
ed the sun set over beautiful Lake 
.Michigan. This was followed by square 
dances, council circles, and many other 

Realizing that our Danforth Fellow- 
ship had ended all too soon, we left our 
many friends with sorrow, but with 
hopes of continuing our friendships 
through letters and future reunions. 


Countess Freya von Moltke, former 
German underground agent, lectured at 
the University of Maryland on the 
"German Underground Movement Dur- 
ing World War II." 

Numerous plots to assassinate Adolph 
Hitler were described by the Countess. 
She was connected with various plans 
to rid the world of one of its most in- 
famous dictators. The most nearly suc- 
cessful one, according to Countess von 
Moltke, took place on July 20, 1944, 
when Count von Stauffenberg exploded 
a bomb in Hitler's cellar. 

Countess von Moltke is in a position 
to give first-hand information on these 
plots because she became a member of 
one of the underground groups when 
her husband was taken prisoner by the 
Gestapo and later executed for his 
democratic opposition to Hitler.

School of 


Marvin J. Andrews '22 

Master of Drugs 

(In The Baltimore Sunday Sun) 

A LARGE, imposing building honor- 
ing a quiet, retiring man is to be 
erected early next year at Cold Spring 
Lane and Kernwood Avenue, Baltimore. 

To be known as the Kelly Memorial 
Building, its construction is being spon- 
sored by a group representing the 
American Pharmaceutical Association 
and the Maryland Pharmaceutical As- 
sociation, under the direction of Dr. 
H. A. B. Dunning, of Baltimore. 

The building will honor the memory 
of Dr. Evander F. Kelly, secretary of 
the American Pharmaceutical Associa- 
tion for nineteen years; dean of the 
University of Maryland's school of 
pharmacy for eight years, and lecturer 
at the Johns Hopkins school of medicine 
from 1917 until his death five years ago. 

Expected to cost at least S100.000, 
the building will be of limestone, with 

brick and limestone trim. It will serve 
Maryland pharmacists as the Medical 
and Chirurgical Faculty building serves 
the medical profession in this State. 

The building will be two stories high, 
with a large basement for the heating 
plant, washrooms, kitchens and utility 
rooms. On the ground floor will be the 
offices of the Maryland Pharmaceutical 
Association, a 2,000-volume library and 
a small laboratory where pharmaceu- 
tical techniques will be demonstrated. 

An assembly room on the second floor 
will accommodate up to 250 persons. 
The association will meet here for lec- 
tures, business and entertainment. 

Set in nearly two acres of landscaped 
grounds, the building will be impressive 
in its residential surroundings, and, 
though it will not reflect the personality 
of the man it honors, it will mirror his 
standing in the profession. 

Dr. Kelly rose from drugstore clerk 
(before the turn of the century) in 
Green Cove Springs, Fla.. to guide the 
largest group of organized pharmacists 
in the world. Most of his adult life was 
spent teaching in Maryland and, despite 
his notable accomplishments, the spot- 
light was not often on him. for he 
avoided it. 

Upon graduation from the Maryland 
School of Pharmacy in 1902, with 

honors, Dr. Kelly worked on the staff of 
a drug manufacturing firm. He later 
taught at the University of Maryland 
under Dr. Charles Caspari, dean of the 
school of pharmacy. 

As a teacher, Dr. Kelly is remem- 
bered as a poor disciplinarian, due to a 
dislike of hurting anybody's feelings. 
But he also is remembered by his pupils 
for his kindness, consideration and for 
his little stories which always began, 
"My Daddy used to say . . ." 

He became a member of the Mary- 
land Pharmaceutical Association, and 
was elected its secretary in 1907. In 
that position he constantly urged his 
fellow members to raise the standard 
of their work. 

Due in large measure to his persist- 
ent prodding, Maryland enacted legis- 
lation requiring all practicing phar- 
macists to be college graduates. Dr. 
Kelly used his influence to have the 
length of the pharmacy course in- 
creased from two to three, and finally, 
to four years. 

Dr. Kelly became dean of his alma 
mater's school of pharmacy in 1918, 
and one of the tasks he then took on 
was to revise Dr. Caspari's "Treatise 
of Pharmacy," which was then, and 
still is, the standard textbook. 

A year before that, however, in lt*l 7. 
he became the first pharmacist member 
of the staff of the school of medicine at 
Jchns Hopkins, serving as special lec- 
turer to future doctors. He scored an- 
other notable first when he was the first 
pharmacist to be elected a member of 
the Maryland State Department of 
Health, a post he held from 1920 until 
his death. 

In 1925, Dr. Kelly became the secre- 
tary of the American Pharmaceutical 
Association. He had been a member of 
its house of delegates from 1917. 

In this position, he put much effort in 
the direction of national reforms, such 
as the food and drug acts. 

In 1933, Dr. Kelly was awarded the 
Remington medal, the highest award 
in the field of pharmacy. It is given to 
persons whose work during the previous 


Dean of the University of Maryland's 
school of pharmacy was outstanding in his 

year, or over a period of years, is 
judged most Important to American 

In an address after the presentation 
of the medal Dr. Kelly said: "Phar- 
macy has been a kind and considerate 

mistress to me. It has given me the 
opportunity to have a full life in a 
worthwhile calling." 

Pharmacy, however, did not com- 
pletely fill Dr. Kelly's life. Married, and 
with three sons and a daughter, he lived 
near Cockeysville, in a large house 
called Montrose that once had been 
owned by the Cockey family. 

After he became secretary of the na- 
tional professional organization, which 
has headquarters in Washington, he 
opened an apartment in Washington. 
Each Friday night, however, he moved 
back to his country home, to work 
around the house and grounds. 

The gardens were properly cultivated, 
a swimming pool excavated, and when 
time allowed, Dr. Kelly constructed dry 
walls — walls made of stone, without the 
use of binding material. 

So much work was done around the 
house and gardens by Dr. Kelly that his 
wife still refers affectionately to him as 
"the one-man chain gang at Montrose." 

Life was simple at Montrose. A fa- 
vorite way of getting around with Dr. 
Kelly was horse and rig. 

In 1942, before synthetic antimalarial 
drugs came into general use, Dr. Kelly 
scoured the United States for quinine, 
to combat malaria which was felling 
soldiers serving on Pacific islands. Alto-

For the opening of the University of 
Maryland's 1949-50 winter season "The 
Girl in the Heart of Maryland" is, un- 
challenged, Gladys Swarthout, opera, 
motion picture and radio star. 

In excellent voice, the beautiful Deep- 
water, Missouri girl won the hearts of 
an audience that smashed all attendance 
records for musical presentations at 
College Park. The Coliseum was packed 
to its uppermost and farthest corners. 
Standing room was at a premium with 
standees backed up to the outer doors. 

It takes a truly great performer to 
project to an audience the fact that a 
highly talented artiste, a gracious lady 
and a regular fellow, can be contained 
in one attractive package. 

Miss Swarthout left a smiling, happy 
audience with the knowledge that they 
had enjoyed a wonderful evening, 
thanks to a gifted lady who, somehow 
has the knack of getting across to her 
audience that Gladys Swarthout, natur- 
ally, is the same off stage as on. The 
Maryland audience loved that. 

Overly generous with encores, Miss 
Swarthout charmed her listeners with 
a program that ranged from Sadero's 
plaintiff Italian lullaby, "Fa la nana 
Bambin," to Bizet's "Habanera" from 

The historic rafters of Ritchie Coli- 
seum have been shaken on past occa- 
sions when Maryland audiences reacted 
to outstanding achievements by great 
Terrapin athletes. Gladys Swarthout 
proved that a demure mezzo soprano 
can achieve the same rousing, rafter- 
shaking audience reaction provided she 
possesses the "class" of a Gladys

The duty of a University faculty i 
the overall education of the student i 
clearly set forth in the biennial repoi 
of Dr. Harold F. Cotterman, Dean c 
the Faculty at the University of Mar\ 

The faculty obje< 
tive, as Dean Cottei 
man indicates, is no 
only to develop th 
student in academi 
and classroom ac 
tivities but t 
achieve the broa 
objective that wil 
after graduatior 
maintain and pel 
petuate mutual r* 
spect and pride be 
tween the Univer 
sity of Mary Ian 
and the student wh 
graduated therefrom. 

In this connection Dr. Cottermai 
wrote: — 

"One who has been close to ever\ 
phase of the University's instructiona 
programs during the past biennium 
close to its struggle to stretch its budge 
to meet the unusual demands place* 
upon it during this period; who ha.

varied phases of the State's highly 
competitive anil complex life- intelli- 
gent agriculture, business, education, 

engineering, dent is try, homemaking, 
law, medicine, military responsibilities, 
pharmacy, physical eilucatiou, nursing, 
extension education, recreation, re- 
search and the many other highly de- 
veloped arts which the I 7 nirersity's de- 
partments touch in one way or another. 
One with such contacts cannot but be 
impressed further with the thought 
that the University of Maryland rc/irc- 
sents an activity of the State which the 
State must continue to support i>i one 
form or another if the State is to con- 
tinue to occupy a favored position in the 
broad area of highly competitive mod- 
ern life." 

Immediately related to the above is 
the emphasis Dean Cotterman places 
upon the value of physical education 
and athletics in the following words: — 

"A roster of the important activities 
contributing to the enrichment of the 
total educational program of the Uni- 
versity during the biennium would not 
be complete without mentioning the 
program of competitive sports. The 
athletic activities, both intercollegiate 
and intramural, played an important 
rcle in student health and served as a 
valuable adjunct to the College of Mili- 
tary Science, Physical Education and 
Recreation. Scores of students engaged 
in these highly competitive body and 
character building activities. In all of 
these programs there was present the 
educational concept that the activities 
of the playing fields help to develop 
throughout the student body a con- 
sciousness of and a lasting appreciation 
for those great ideals for which the 
University stands. The proposed in- 
creased facilities for these programs 
now in the University's plans will unify 
this type of education and greatly in- 
crease its important outcomes."

missing blocks and tackles and your whole 
play for the past two weeks has been very 
sloppy. For the rest of the week we are 
going to work on fundamentals and I MEAN 
fundamentals." Then he placed a football 
in his hand and held it out for the squad 
to see. "This object," he said, "is a football!" 

"Just a minute. Coach," jusl-a-minuted a 
brawny tackle. "Not so FAST."

A professional is a fellow who does 
his job, who follows a career, for pay. 
A good "pro" studies his profession in 
order to improve himself in it. Thus he 
ofttimes finds himself admiring pro- 
fessional qualities in opponents and 

One of the finest examples of the ex- 
tremely essential "professional atti- 
tude" was provided by a rugged old 
Marine Corps Sergeant on Iwo Jima. 

Wars bring about a lot of flag wav- 
ing, pomp and prunella, plus a lot of 
steamed up hate for the enemy and a 
lot of applause for "the boys in uni- 
form." The older "boys in uniform," 
however, have long since learned that 
the applause, not far removed from 
'apple sauce,' stops when the shooting 

In all the mass hysteria the "pro" 
keeps his mind on the ball and his fire 
under cool, calm control. 

Thus we have the last stages of Iwo 
Jima, the fight about over, but still 
some desultory firing amid the chaos 
and devastation of battle. There is this 
old Sergeant, his bloody shirt almost 
torn from his shoulders, his weapon 
held across his middle, his legs knee 
deep in volcanic ash, pointing to what 
had been the Japanese lines and re- 
marking, "If we ever move up again I 

hope those little are on our side, 

because those little - can 


Note also that in professional, col- 
legiate or amateur sports these days 
the reference to "pros" is being ac- 
cepted with a meaning other than that 
the fellow referred to is performing 
in return for financial remuneration. 

Certain members of the New York 
Yankees, for instance, are referred to 
as "pros," while others on that team 
have not yet qualified for that designa- 
tion as it is applied today.

The meaning is obvious. It is meant 
to designate a fellow who, no matter 
what he undertakes, be it a job in the 
professions or business, in sports or in 
a blackboard algebra example ap- 
proaches the job and accomplishes it in 
a "professional manner," with the "pro- 
fessional attitude" apparent. 

When a bona-fide amateur becomes so 
good at anything he undertakes that his 
work is that of an accomplished artist 
or workman, he looks and acts and per- 
forms like a "pro" and that's the sort 
of fellow being called a "pro" these 

That "professional attitude" is a 
good attitude to strive for in any under- 
taking, since it is based on self-con- 
fidence in the individual's efficiency and 

A "pro" possesses and displays that 
indefinable but definitely tangible 
quality commonly called "class."

football team for 
the second time in the 
three years that Jim 
Tatum has been its head 
coach will play in the 
Gator Bowl at Jackson- 
ville, Fla., on Monday, 
January 2. Usually bowl 
games are played on 
New Year's Day but it 
happened to be on Sun- 
day this time. Missouri, 
one of the midwest's and 
Nation's best, will fur- 
nish the opposition. 
Missouri is coached by no less than 
Don Faurot, called the father of the 
split T. He is the coach who converted 
Tatum to this flashy style of play while 
Jim was assisting him in tutoring the 
famous Iowa Seahawks during the war. 
Tatum, who had been a single winger 
up to that time, fell in love with the 
split T and was highly successful with 
it at Jacksonville Naval Air Station and 
Oklahoma University before coming to 
College Park. 

A 14-13 triumph over previously un- 
beaten Boston University at Beantown 
on November 12 put Maryland firmly 
in the bowl picture and the 47-7 rout 
of West Virginia on Thanksgiving Day 
settled the issue. These were sufficient 
for J. B. Daiby, chairman of the selec- 
tion committee, and he acted on Novem- 



DAVE CIANELLI, Terrapin guard, coming 
at top speed, grabbed a North Carolina State 
pass and raced to a touchdown. The play 
turned the tide for Maryland. 

Dave, a junior, is from Hagerstown. He's 
21, stands 6 ft. 1 and tips the Fairbanks- 
Morse at 181. Wide awake, alert fellow to 
have around in a ball game. 




"Lives there a center with soul so dead, who never to himself hath said, 'I'd like to gallop 
across that goal line with the ball'." In the 40 to 7 win over West Virginia, Terp Center Jim 
Brasher, left above, intercepted a Mountaineer pass and, in high gear like a jack rabbit from 
his native Texas, big Jim went all the way for the tally. 

A few moments later, to make it a "Day for Centers," Vern Seibert lateralled to Center 
Jake Rowden, Arizona lad, and Jake also galloped across that line like the Lone Ranger on 
a good day. 

Some years ago Bob Ripley, "In Believe It Or Not," featured a Navy center, Jimmy 
Lowry, of the U.S.S. Idaho, who played football for 19 years before he scored a touchdown. 

ber 28 without waiting for the outcome 
of the Terps battle with Miami in the 
Florida resort city on December 2. 
Maryland was picked the morning of 
November 28 and Missouri announced 
that night. 

Tied Georgia In 1948 

On the Terps 1948 visit to Jackson- 
ville, Maryland almost upset the two 
touchdown favored Georgia eleven but 
the latter rallied in the final quarter to 
gain a 20-20 tie. 

It actually will be Tatum's third trip 
in the five years the Gator Bowl has 
been in existence. He took his Okla- 
homa team there in 1947 and gave 
North Carolina State a 34-13 walloping. 

Here is Maryland's record up to the 
final contest with Miami U.: 

*Maryland 34; Virginia Tech 7 
Maryland 33; Georgetown 7 

*Maryland 7; Michigan State 14 

*Maryland 14; North Carolina State 6 
Maryland 44; South Carolina 7 
Maryland 40; George Washington 14 

*Maryland 14; Boston University 13 
Maryland 47; West Virginia 7 

*Away from home. 

Outside of Michigan State and Boston 
U., the Miami team, which has lost only 
two of its eight games, easily was the 
toughest assignment faced by the Terps. 
Miami defeated Rollins College, Louis- 
ville University, Georgia, Detroit U., 
South Carolina and Florida and lost only 
to Purdue, 14-0, and Kentucky, 21-6. 

The Old Liners really routed West 
Virginia, with two of the seven touch- 
downs scored against the Mountaineers 
being made by the Terps two ace 

centers, Senior Jim Brasher and Junior 
Jake Rowden whom we wouldn't swap 
for any pair in the Nation. It was the 
first either had scored in his football 
career and coming in one game their 
feats were unusual if not unique. 

Maryland thrilled its followers with 
the workmanlike manner in which it 
disposed of the Mountaineers who did 
not score until near the end of the game 
when reserves were playing for the 
Terps. Then they gained a third of the 
yai'dage they made all day by going 75 
yards for their lone marker. 

Soon Becomes A Parade 

Penalties halted Maryland early in 
the fray but Mighty Mo Modzelewski 
scored in the first period, went over 
again in the second quarter to end a 62 
yard march and Jim LaRue intercepted 
a pass to start a 48 yard drive to make 
the score 21-0 at intermission. Stan 
Lavine, who shared the quarterback 
duties with Joe Tucker, went the last 16 
yards on a "sneak" play. 

An avalanche of three touchdowns 
came in the third quarter. Vic Wingate, 
a great end, hugged a Mountaineer 
fumble near the goal line and Tucker 
"sneaked" across. Then Centers Brasher 
and Rowden put on their stirring act 
with Vera Seibert as a hero in both. 
Brasher grabbed an aerial and dashed 
36 yards across the goal with the help 
of a timely block by Seibert.

Heard in the West Virginia stands: 
"Shucks, that field is too level for our 
boys to play well!" 


An able supporter of Bob Ward in thai 
left guard spot. 

It was only 39 seconds later that 
Rowden scored with Seibert's aid and 
generosity. Seibert took a punt on 
Maryland's 45 yard line, ran 27 yards to 
West Virginia's 28 where he lateraled 
the ball to Rowden and then made the 
block that cleared the latter's path. 
Rowden was going down to block for 
Seibert and the little halfback doubtless 
could have gone all the way himself had 
he so elected. 

Touchdown No. 7 came early in the 
fourth period when Art Hurd, reserve 
end, recovered a fumble on the 16 yard 
line. A Lavine to Joe Kuchta pass 
finished the job. 

Puts Terps In Spotlight 

While the four other games that 
were played since we reported to you 
all were interesting and the North 
Carolina State affair proved exception- 
ally tough, it was the Boston U. em- 
broglio that put Maryland right in the 
front ranks and gained unusual na- 
tional publicity. It was a ferocious 
struggle from start to the final whistle. 

In the Hub battle Maryland was first 
to score when Joe Tucker piloted the 
team 77 yards to finally carry the ball 
over on a quarterback sneak. Then Bob 
Dean kicked the first of two extra 
points that was to count so heavily in 
the result. This drive started late in the 
first quarter and paid off early in the 
second period. 

B.U. matched Maryland's touchdown 
about midway of the second stanza 
after grabbing a Terp pass that slipped 
from Ed Modzelewski's hands. This was 
on the B.U. 43 yard line. After getting 
to the 18 yard stripe, B.U. apparently 
was checked but Maryland was penal- 
ized 15 yards for alleged holding and 
the Terriers went the other three but 
missed the extra point that was to 
prove fatal. 

Lavine Equal To Task 

A blocked punt that was recovered on 
Maryland's 32 yard line set-up Boston's 
last score in the third period. After one 
play had gained three yards, Bob 
Whelan, B.U.'s great back, dashed the 
rest of the way. 

Early in the fourth period, Coach Jim 
latum sent in Stan Lavine to pilot the 
Trips and he came through with great 
generalship that carried the Terps 81 
yards to the winning score. He sneaked 
over from the one yard marker and 
then Dean calmly booted the big point. 
Kd Modzelewski and Earl Roth wrecked 
the Terriers in the line drive. 

en minutes remained in the game 
hut Maryland's kickoff was stopped on 
B.U.'s four yard line, the Terriers were 
forced to kick on fourth down after 
going nowhere and Maryland kept the 
hall the remainder of the game. They 
had it within 20 yards of another score 
at the finish. 

N. C. State Is Tough 

North Carolina State almost proved 
a tarter for Maryland that had re- 
mained out of action the previous week 
and was not attuned for the game. State 
scored first in the opening period after 
recovering a fumble on Maryland's 17 
vard line but failed to kick the extra

ceiving end of sensational forward passes

point. The Terps went ahead 7-6 in the 
second quarter when Modzelewski took 
a lateral and flashed 10 yards around 
end. The clincher came early in the 
fourth quarter when Guard Dave 
Cianelli snatched a State pass and ran 
47 yards across the goal unmolested. 

Maryland got 14 points in the first 
quarter to run away from South Caro- 
lina in a game that had been expected 
to be much closer. Joe Tucker had a 
great day with his passing, completing 
9 of 12 for nearly 250 yards. Maryland, 
which had been futile in the air previ- 
ously, completed 13 of 18 in all for 307 
yards. Altogether it was a pleasing 
homecoming day. 

Passing Wrecks G. W. 

It was passing, too, that wrecked 
George Washington. Only on this oc- 
casion it was Lavine instead of Tucker 
who had a hot hand. For some reason 
Tucker just couldn't get started against 
the Colonials and there was no score in 
the first period and the Terp fans were 
getting worried. Lavine, who tossed for 
a total of 207 yards of the 243 Maryland 



He took a kick 74 yards for a touchdown 
against George Washington. 

got through the air, piloted the Terps 
to four touchdowns in the second quar- 
ter and that settled the issue if not the 
final score. Lavine passed for two 
touchdowns, scored one and set up 

He didn't quite steal the show from 
an offensive standpoint as Bob (Shoo- 
Shoo) Shemonski took a punt in the 
fourth chapter and traveled 76 yards 
for a touchdown. He paced himself 
nicely and got some fine blocking. 

Great Defensive Feat 

To go back to the Boston U. game, it 
should be mentioned that Maryland 
once held for downs on the four yard 
line when the Terriers had only a foot 
to go for a first down. Tackle Chester 
Gierula met the ball carrier headon and 
he didn't make an inch. 

B.U. gained more yardage on the 
ground than Maryland but something 
had to be given up to put the quietus 
on the passing of Harry Agganis who 
got only 55 yards all day. He had 
pitched 15 touchdowns in the six previ- 
ous games. 

It was a great feat to hold a team to 
13 points that had averaged 40 against 
such opposition as Syracuse, Colgate, 
West Virginia, New York U., Scranton 
and Temple. B.U. was the second best 
offensive team in the country until No- 
vember 12.

Seibert Repays Coach Tatum's Generosity 

The script was 100 per cent but 
the lines weren't exactly followed 
in a little drama that was staged in 
Maryland's triumph over West Vir- 
ginia at College Park on turkey 

Vein Seibert's mother, who is an 
invalid, was seeing her son play 
football for the first time and when 
Maryland got the ball on the West 
Virginia 4 yard line in the third 
period, Coach Jim Tatum sent the 
Baltimore senior into the Terp 
backfield to have the honor of mak- 
ing the touchdown. Seibert made 
about three yards on the first try 
but unfortunately fumbled when he 
was about to cross the line on his 
second rush and West Virginia re- 
covered. It wasn't costly as Mary- 
land quickly regained a Mountain- 
eer fumble and scored. 

It was a generous and thoughtful 
gesture by Coach Tatum and Sei- 
bert more than made up for his 
bobble a little later. Taking a punt 
on his own 45-yard marker, he sped 
27 yards before he lateraled to 
Center Jake Rowden, who went the 
rest of the way. On this play, Sei- 
bert was as generous as Coach 
Tatum as he doubtless could easily 
have gone the route as Rowden was 
downfield to take out the last man. 
Seibert, however, traded jobs with 
Rowden and threw the telling block 
for Jake. 

Seibert was one of eight Terps 
who was playing his last home 
game for Maryland. Others were 
Bob Roulette and Earl Roth, full- 
backs; Jim LaRue, halfback; Joe 
Tucker and Stan Lavine, quarter- 
backs; Center Jim Brasher and 
Captain Fred Davis, sterling end. 

All were highly important cogs 
in Maryland's fine season. 




Ward Is All-South 

Bob Ward, Maryland's 178-pound 
guard, was the only Terp to make the 
all-South team as selected by Collier's 
magazine of December 3. Ray Krouse, 
generally rated as All-America tackle 
caliber, surprisingly was given only 
honorable mention. Krouse, though, was 
picked on the all-Southern Conference 
first team. As Collier's all-America 
eleven will be picked from among the 
five sectional star teams, Ward was in 
the running for a national berth, but 
Krouse was out as far as this magazine 
was concerned. However, there are 
others with the Associated Press selec- 
tions as tops in our opinion. This great 
news gathering organization has far 
more breadth than is possible for any 
other setup. 


When Maryland plays the Missouri 
Tigers in Jacksonville on January 2, 
the Old Liners will be facing one of the 
Nation's most colorful and trickiest 
outfits and the battle of the split T's 
should provide a wide-open thriller. 

While Missouri captured only seven 
of its ten games during the season, 
which it ended with a 34-27 triumph 
over Kansas State, it lost two of its 
games to powerhouse opposition by the 
margin of one point, failure of goal 
after touchdown. These heartbreaking 
defeats were at the hands of Ohio State, 
35-34, the team that will play Cali- 
fornia in the Rose Bowl, and to South- 
ern Methodist, 28-27, in the first two

Since then, the Tigers' only setback 
came at the hands of the unbeaten 
Oklahoma U. juggernaut and they gave 
the Sooners one of their best battles of 
the season before bowing to the Sugar 
Bowl favorites, 27-7. 

Among Missouri's victims was Illinois 
of the Big Ten. Its closest triumph was 
a 21-20 thriller with Nebraska and its 

easiest affair was a 32-0 licking of Iowa 

Missouri, which piled up 257 points 
in its ten games, appears to be a 
stronger offensive than defensive com- 
bination, as it allowed a total of 205 
points. Its defense was tight in only 
one other game than that with Iowa 
State when it beat the Oklahoma Ag- 
gies, 21-7. Here is the complete record: 

Missouri 34; Ohio State 35 
Missouri 27; Southern Methodist 28 
Missouri 21; Oklahoma Aggies 7 
Missouri 27; Illinois 20 
Missouri 32; Iowa State 
Missouri 21; Nebraska 20

Following the Miami game, the Terps 
were to practice three times a week 
until December 23 when time was to be 
taken off for a short Christmas holiday. 
They will go by air to Jacksonville on 
December 26 and resume practice there.

FROSH, 4 OF 5 

Maryland's freshman football team, 
coached by the able and affable Bill 
Meek, won four of its five games, losing 
only in the final to the George Wash- 
ington yearlings, 13-18. Other results

(At Chapel Hill) 

Had Maryland been able to capture 
its tilt with the Colonials, it would have 
been the first frosh outfit in history to 
make a sweep of its schedule. In 1936, 
the Terp yearlings won four games and 
tied Virginia Frosh 6-6 for the best 

However, Meek's charges gave up 
hope of beating G. W. by spending the 
four previous days of the week running 
Boston U. plays to tune the Varsity to 
lick the Terriers in the Hub on Novem- 
ber 12. This gave them no chance to 
make any special preparation for the 

The younn Terps had no trouble with 
Georgetown and West 


Virginia but 

Fork Union had a great prep school 
outfit and North Carolina always i- 
strong. But the Terps had enough forti- 
tude and ability to clear these hurdles. 

Fumbles and an inopportune penalty 
cost the Terps their chance for victory 
against G. W. as they were leading 
13-12 at one stage. 

Among the standouts on the frosh 
squad were Ed Modzelewski, Bob Mor- 
gan and Stanley Jones, husky tackles; 
Jack Overholt, center; Jack Scarbath 
and Bob DeStafano, quarterbacks, who 
can run and pass, and Ed Fullerton and 
Joe Petruzzo, who can travel. Scarbath 
and Petruzzo also are excellent kickers. 

Modzelewski. who scales 220 and i;- 
rugged, is a brother of Mighty Mo, 
varsity halfback. Scarbath is a Balti- 
more Poly product. 

John Alderton, tall end, and Charley 
Lattimer, 200 pound guard, Cumber- 
land lads are among the leading pros- 
pects for future development. 


lARYLAND'S basketball 
squad, led by eight vet- 
eran eagers, has been 
practicing for the past 
month in preparation for 
the coming season. 

Coach "Flucie" Stewart, 
starting his third year as 
varsity mentor called his charges out 
for the first time October 4 and some L'O 
meetings have been held since then.

Three others with more than 100 
markers to their credit last year — 
Bernie Smith, Frank Armsworthy, and 
Ronnie Siegrist — will also be back gun- 
ning for starting berths. 

Smith, a set-shot artist, played bas- 
ketball all summer in New York borscht 
circuit against top-notch pro and col- 
lege competition. 

Armsworthy will likely continue in 
his role as play-maker and floor leader, 
though he is also tops on defensive re- 
bounds. While steadying the team over 
many rough moments last year, he 
found time to bucket over 100 points 

Another pivot-post candidate is Sie- 
grist, seasonal author of over 100 tallies 
in the 1948-49 season. Most of his bas- 
kets are scored on jump shots from the 
foul circle. 

Taylor Looks Good 

Other returnees are Dick Taylor, Bob 
Yordy, and Al Lann. Taylor has been 
showing up especially well in scrim- 
mages to date and may well be headed 
for his best season as a Terp eager. 
Lann is back after sitting out last year 
as an ineligible. 

Players missing from last year's 
squad include Captain John Edwards, 
who has completed his four years of 
eligibility and Spence Wright, a 1949 
graduate. Both contributed heavily in 
the scoring department last year.

Maryland's soccer team won the 
Southern Conference championship 
and finished the season with an 8-2 
record when it defeated North 
Carolina, 1-0, and Duke, 4-1, on a 
trip to the Tar Heel State Novem- 
ber 22 and 23. 

LED BY thirteen lettermen the 1949 
version of the Terrapin soccer 
club got off to a whirlwind start, drop- 
ping the first four opponents by the 
wayside. A strong offensive and defen- 
sive lineup provided the lopsided scores 
in the early contests 
of the season. The 
first seven games 
found the Terps out- 
scoring their op- 
ponents by the 
amazing count of 27 
goals to 10 for the 

Most prominent 
among the veterans 
was Jim Belt, 1948 
All-American selec- 
tion. Belt showed 
that he had not lost 

. _ his touch by adding 

Coach Royal _ . , 

five goals to the 

Liner cause in the first four tilts. Corky 
Anacker and Ed Rieder, both All-State 
from the preceding season, were on 
hand to start the ball rolling into the 
opponent's nets for the current session. 
Rieder also accounted for five goals in 
the initial four games. 

In addition to the old faces, "new 
blood" figured as an important factor 
in the early Terp success. Eric Baer and 
Bob Butehorn, both up from the Frosh 
squad, provided the goalkeeping neces- 
sary for the airtight defense. Bob 
Hamilton, also up from the Freshman 
team, took an important role in the 
drive by replacing letterman Dan Terzi 
on several occasions. Terzi, honorable 
mention for All-American, severely 
sprained his ankle in the pre-season 
practice period and saw only limited 
action for the first few games. 

Jim Savage, Guillermo Martinez, and 
Don Sodeburg, all sophomores, drew 
notable spots in the lineup and showed 
up well under fire. 

Holding together the backfield de- 
fense were veterans Don Buck, Claude 
Robinson, Mike Kinder, and John Linz, 
who was all-state and honorable men- 
tion for All-American. All four pro- 
vided the timely boots that stemmed 
enemy drives and staved off scoring 

Gene Volpe put kick into the line by 
adding extra scoring punch. In one 
game, Volpe drove home four tallies to 
establish himself as the record holder 
in the individual scoring department for 
a single game. After the opening four 
contests, Volpe found himself tied with 
Belt and Rieder in the counter column. 
Each had five goals to his credit. 

After three weeks of hard practicing 
and scrimmaging, Coach Doyle Royal 
put his charges up against a fast mov- 
ing Gettysburg eleven on the College 
Park field. The Bullets were the first 
to taste the Terp offensive power and 
went down, 3-1. 

On the following week, win No. 2 
was added to the book and the records 
came tumbling down. Virginia was the 
victim of a 10-1 lacing, a pace setting 
number of goals for any Terrapin 
soccer squad to date. It was in this 
game that Volpe set his mark of four 


Hitting their stride, the Liners went 
on to topple Salisbury State Teachers 
on the field opposite Byrd Stadium by a 
5-1 count. Mike Kinder and Davis Dei- 
bert provided a spectacular finish to 
this game with a last second score on 
a boot from mid field by Kinder. Diebert 
tapped the ball into the net just even 
with the final whistle. Coaches and 
officials all agreed that it was the most 
miraculous goal they had ever wit- 

Loyola was the next guest at College 
Park, and the Greyhounds suffered the 
same fate as their predecessors. Belt 
showed that his All-American ratings 
were good for something besides scrap 
book material, and scored three times 
to lead the 4-3 victory. Two of his 
markers came within the last three 
minutes of play to turn an almost cer- 
tain defeat to a horse of a different 

A two week layoff followed the 
Loyola game, and preparations were 
made for the "big one" coming up with 
Temple. The Owls, rated second only to 
Penn State were considered sharp, and 
the Terps hoped to dull their claws. The 
game was played in Philadelphia on a 
cold, windy day; the black clouds 
ominous of the first Maryland loss. A 
1-0 margin gave the Terps their first 
setback in a game that the Temple 
mentor called a "toss-up." The Temple 
tilt saw numerous Maryland goal at- 
tempts bounce off the goal posts in 
freakish fashion, but not one succeeded 
in entering the net. 

Rebounding from the initial loss, the 
Liners marched south and trimmed 
Washington & Lee, 3-0, in a midweek 
game. Rieder and Belt accounted for 
two of the points and Jim Savage broke 
into the scoring column for the first 
time with the third point and since has 
maintained a regular position on the 
first string. 

Penn State took advantage of the 
Terp's hospitality next and went home 
with a hard earned win. It took two 
overtime periods and two disputed free 
penalty kicks to bring the Nittany 
Lions from behind to down the Terra- 
pins, 3-2. The Staters, hard pressed all 
the way, admitted that Maryland fielded

Harriers Unbeaten For Third Year In Row 

COACH JIM KEHOE'S crow coun- 
try team finished its thin) straight 
season without defeat when the fleet 
and sturdy Maryland harriers captured 
their third Southern Conference crown 
in a row at College Park on Novem- 
ber 14. 

It also was the third straight confer- 
ence title for Bob Palmer, who flashed 
across the finish line of the 4*4 mile 
route to set a new course mark for all 
five meets in which he competed during 
the season. His time was 21 :34.6. 
Palmer did not compete in a meet 
against the Olympic Club of Baltimore 
and four Terps tied to set a course 
mark in that test. 

In running off with the conference 
honors, Maryland placed six men in the 
first 15 runners, but only five count, and 
had the exceptionally low score of 32. 
North Carolina State, unbeaten in seven 
dual meets, was second with 80; North 
Carolina was a close third with 85; 
Davidson was fourth with 92 and Wil- 
liam and Mary, Duke, Virginia Poly 
and Wake Forest trailed in that order. 
Despite its lowly finish, William and 
Mary runners ran fourth and fifth. 

Creamer In Great Finish 

Tyson Creamer of Maryland got 
second place by a foot in a great 
stretch duel with Sam Magill of North 
Carolina. They came down the last 100 
yards like sprinters. Here is the order 
of finish of the first fifteen: 

1 — Palmer, Maryland; 2 — Creamer, 
Maryland; 3 — Magill, North Carolina; 
4 and 5 — Baker and Lindsay, William 
and Mary; 6 — Jim Umbarger, Mary- 
land; 7 — Hamrick, North Carolina; 8— 
Bradley, Davidson; 9 — Stockton, N. C. 
State; 10 — Jim Harris, Maryland; 11 
and 12 — Dubow and Leonard, N. C. 
State; 13 — Joe Grimaldi, Maryland; 
14— Keenan, N. C. State; 15— Bob 
Browning, Maryland. 

Lindy Kehoe, Jim's brother, always 
up front in the dual meets, had his legs 
tie-up on him about the halfway mark 
and had to stop for a while. He resumed 
but finished far down the list. 

Outclass Their Rivals 

Maryland never was pressed in its 
five dual meets, having the five first 
runners in two of them. Here is the 
season record with the order of finish 
of the Maryland runners: 

Maryland, 19; Duke, 42: 1 — Palmer 
and Kehoe; 3 — Creamer; 6 — Grimaldi, 
Browning, Harris, Ferrara. Palmer and 
Kehoe ran the 4 miles in 20:11. 

Maryland, 21; William and Mary, 41: 
1— Palmer in 23:30 for the 4% miles; 
2 — Kehoe; 5 — Creamer; 6 — Browning; 
7— Grimaldi. 

Maryland, 15; Baltimore Olympic 
Club, 54: 1 — Kehoe, Creamer, Um- 
barger and Browning in 20:53 for the 
4 miles; 5 — Browning. 

Maryland, 15; Quantico Marines, 77: 


For the third time Maryland's cross country runners, coached by Jim Kehoe, annexed 
the Southern Conference championship.

So Said Honest John Kelly, "The Scranton Pine Knot" 

r,\ Heinle Miller 

Maryland* Boxing Coach 

ARYLAND has another 
rugged, more rugged 
than usual, boxing sea- 
son coming up over the 
not distant horizon. 
There are no "breath- 
ers," no easy teams in 
collegiate boxing these 
days. It might be a 
good time to retell a 
true story. This one has 
been told many times to 
Maryland boxers. 

Back in 1939, when West Point came 
down for a post season match, proudly 
presenting an unbeaten Eastern cham- 
pionship team, the eight cadets on that 
team were impressive looking fellows, 
well stacked athletes, crew haircuts, 

solid necks, square jaws and quite a 
few marks of battle. They looked like 
"fighters" and they were very good 
fighters. Some of the Maryland kids 
like Nate Askin, a tennis player who 
looked frail even for a tennis player, 
Bob Bradley, piano player for the Glee 
Club, Newton Cox, a baseball player, 
Frank Cronin, his first year on the 
team, felt none too perky at that time. 
Askin and Bradley didn't look like 
fighters. Neither did Cox or Cronin or 
Morty Steinbach. 

California Bound 
Prior to that, in 1937, Benny Alper- 
stein, Tom Birmingham and I were on 
a plane, headed for Sacramento and the 
NCAA nationals. Benny had gotten 
hold of a West Coast paper featuring 
pictures of Bates of Washington State, 
a deadly puncher, who looked like a

"fighter." Benny was visibly startled 
by the picture and the adjacent lengthy 
K. 0. record. Within 48 hours he'd have 
to box Bates. Benny Alperstein looked 
more like a slightly balding cello player 
than a pugilist. 

So, on that plane in 1937, I told 
Benny this story just as I told it later 
to the 1939 team facing Army. Here 
it is: — 

Back in 1906 I was 18 years old and 
serving in the U.S.S. MARYLAND, 
anchored off Gibraltar, Spain. 

I had just been signed up for my first 
15 round bout against Ernie Rose, of 
B ..M.S. GLORY, featherweight cham- 
pion of the British Navy. 

Every forenoon I was taken ashore 
to do roadwork, completing the gym 
training in a boat house. Each after- 
noon Rose trained in the same place. 
We did not meet each other during the 
training period. 

Tough Looker 

The usual coin was tossed to deter- 
mine whether the bout would be staged 
on the MARYLAND or on the GLORY. 
The latter won the toss and our fellows 
had to visit the GLORY for the bout. 

I was in the ring first. The first 
glimpse of Rose was a look at his back, 
from across the ring. He was peeling 
off a black satin robe, embroidered with 
a tremendous golden dragon. One of 
those things you pick up on the China 
Coast. Then Rose turned around and 
faced our corner. I just about died the 
death of a rubber duck. The fellow bore 
a tremendous British lion rampant 
tattooed across a very hairy chest. His 
arms — and I didn't miss that — hung 
down, it seemed to his knees. His ears 
were like two golf balls that had been 
chewed for a season by a bulldog. His 
nose was mashed flat and his eyes had 
those "balconies" which cartoonists like 
to hang on drawings of fighters after 
other fighters have hung them there to 
draw from. To top it Rose had one of 
those "blue" shaves that looked like a 
blow torch would be needed in augmen- 
tation of a good old fashioned razor. 

About that time I wished I'd taken up 
tennis, where you get hit only with 
rubber balls and I felt like the Hindu 
fanatics who throw themselves under 
an oncoming juggernaut. Noting that 
there were no gates in the ring ropes I 
wondered why I had ever fallen for 
that lousy billboard back in dear old 
Milwaukee. It had successfully beckon- 
ed to "Join and see the World" but just 
then I wanted very much to see only 
that particular part of the world that 
is divided by the Milwaukee, Menomi- 
nee and Kinickinick Rivers. Selah! 

"The Roller Mill Man" 
However, I had a great coach and 
handler in my corner. A fellow steeped 
in prize ring lore and very smart in- 
deed with it. His name was John Fran- 
c Kelly. He came from Scranton, Pa., 
w here you have to learn to fight or get 
out of town. John got out of town but 
only to find new places wherein to fight. 
The scoop was that he'd licked every- 
body in Scranton, where they called 
him "Honest John, the Roller Mill 
Man." as well as "The Scranton Pine 
Knot." Years later John fought in

World War I as a member of the Prin- 
cess Pats, of Canada, kilted troops 
known as "The Ladies from Hell." I'd 
always wanted to see John in kilts but 
I would have pitied any guy who would 
have laughed at him. Kelly was killed 
in action later as a member of the 
French Foreign Legion against the 
Riffs in Africa. 

Never To Be Forgotten 

So here I had an erudite, fightwise 
fellow like Kelly in my corner. Looking 
over at the "typical pug" in the oppo- 
site corner, Kelly leaned over and 
spoke softly, "Listen, Kid, that fellow 
over there trained in the same place you 
did. You should have met him there and 
you could have. But I wanted you to 
meet the kind of guy that looks like 
that fellow out here under the lights 
and under these impressive circum- 
stances so you'll NEVER FORGET. 
Take a GOOD look at him and as long 
as you are in this game, never forget 
that guys who look like that fellow 

"Now go out there," John concluded, 
"and don't miss him. Apparently no one 
else ever did." 

A yellowed clipping book records that 
that one went less than four rounds 
and terminated in a clean kavo and a 
win for the U.S.S. MARYLAND. As I 
look at the clipping I recall with great 

respect and affection the words of John 
Kelly, "A young feller can learn a lot 
by listening to an old feller." 

Well, that's the story as told to 
Benny Alperstein in 1937 and to the 
whole varsity team in 1939.

Nice Quarters 

Facilities for training boxers at 
Maryland are, in the opinion of Colonel 
Heinie Miller, the Truculent Terrapins 
head coach, the most practical, if not 
the largest in the United States. 

Situated in the gymnasium (the Old 
Gym Armory) the main boxing room 
occupies one-third of the main floor ..nd 
has been partitioned to make a separate 

"In over 48 years of association with 
boxing," Miller said, "I have never 
seen, in collegiate, amateur or profes- 
sional boxing, more practical and effi- 
cient boxing training quarters than 
those now set up at Maryland." 

Four rings are mounted on one large 
platform, each ring 16 x 16 feet inside 
the ropes. The dimensions, compared to 
the ring for actual contests, are small. 
That was done intentionally in order to 
teach embryo mitmen the various 
phases of defense and offense without 
too much "running away" as distin- 
guished from the more artful footwork. 

Over the rings is a semicircular 
balcony on which are installed the 
heavy punching bags as well as the 
lightweight striking bags. The balcony 
also has space for rope skipping. 

Thorough Program 

The main boxing room and balcony 
is operated on a central timing device 
that keeps the time and rings a gong, 
alternately, every two minutes and 
every one. The minute's rest between 
training rounds is used for instruction 

The basement houses individual lock- 
ers and showers. 

The training season started with 
basic instructions for the physical edu- 
cation classes and, from that level, will 
move into the intramural tournament, 
the semi-finals and finals of which will 
be staged in public. Upon conclusion of 
the intramurals, neophite boxers who 
have shown sufficient promise will be 
retained for further schooling for the 
freshman and varsity teams. Maryland 
will also field a junior varsity or "B" 

Close to 150 boxers took part in the 
initial stages of the program. 

The walls of the boxing room are 
decorated with signs with such advice 
as "When in doubt, JAB," "Shed useless 
weight. Lay off starches, fats, sweets." 
Under the time clock is the slogan, 
"Time marches on. WILL YOU?" It 
has been suggested that a sign be also 
affixed to the ceiling reading, "If you 
can read this, you've made a mistake."

lARYLAND has had so 

many bright spots in its 
football history, as we 
said in the last issue in 
starting a series of grid 
articles, that we have 
been placed squarely on 
the spot by fellow mem- 
bers of the "M" Club who asked us to 
recall something about the past. We 
repeat, we just can't do justice to 
everyone in such limited time and space 
but we'll do our durndest. 

This time we are going to get at least 
half way off the spot and make Curley 
Byrd, our esteemed University prexy, 
share the responsibilities. We have to 
travel fast to get anywhere in about 
three dissertations, so we are going to 
cover the entire Byrd regime this time 
in selecting all-timers for those 23 
years— 1912 through 1934. 

In September, 
1935, the fall fol- 
lowing Byrd's dis- 
association as di- 
rector of the Old 
Liners football des- 
tinies, he collabo- 
rated with us in 
naming an all-star 
squad of two teams 
for George Trevor, 
famous grid expert 
of the New York 
Mr. Hottel Evening Post, who 

was writing a series of articles on the 
Nation's leading colleges. 

Tough Assignment 

It was just as tough then as it is 
today to pick out the best over a long 
stretch of years and neither Dr. Byrd 
nor we were, or are, convinced that we 
did a 100 per cent job. But the array 
of stars listed in the accompanying 
columns stood out in our minds at that 
time as the leaders of the pack. Byrd,

mind, saw them all in action many 

If we had to single out any one man 
to wear the top laurels it probably 
would be Roy Mackert, the Bronko 
Nagurski of Eastern football during his 
playing days, who could play tackle, 
halfback or fullback with overpowering 
force. Mack was a crashing ball carrier, 
a devastating blocker and a wrecker on 
defense. Jack McQuade, a fullback, had 
all those qualities and was an expert 
passer. Brooke (Untz) Brewer, a 148- 
pounder, who could step inside and out- 
side at the rate of .09.8 per 100 yards 
and probably the greatest all-around 
kicker who ever lived, Charley Brickley 
not excepted, also deserves considera- 
tion. More about them later. 

In his article of September, 1935, on 
Maryland all-timers, Trevor wrote in 

Byrd Lifts Old Liners 

"When you think of Maryland foot- 
ball your thoughts turn to Curley Byrd, 
the dynamic coach and athletic director, 
who lifted the Old Liners from the 
minor league, so to speak, and placed 
them among the gridiron elite. 

"Under Byrd's dynasty from 1912 
through 1934, Maryland became a 
dreaded visitor to the Yale Bowl. Byrd 

now is acting president of the Univer- 
sity at College Park. He personally de- 
veloped every single one of the all-time 
Maryland players listed here, and six 
of them never played football before 
entering the College Park institution. 

"Caleb (Zeke) Bailey, a Marine Corps 
captain, was the Old Liners' greatest 


Who was all football player either 

tackle or backiielder. 


He came from the "sticks" without grid 
experience to become a great guard. 

center. Oddly enough three other Mary- 
land all-timers also are officers in the 
Marine Corps — Joe Burger, tackle; 
John (Tony) Hough, guard, and Jack 
McQuade, fullback. It would be difficult 
to find a more rugged and efficient pair 
of guards than Omar Crothers and Jess 
Krajcovic. Each was a bearcat in head- 
ing interference and almost immovable 
on defense. (Neither played football be- 
fore entering Maryland.) 

Durable Tackle 

"Lyman Oberlin, key man on the 
famous 1916 line, was a bruising, dura- 
ble tackle and an inspirational leader. 
Burger opened wide holes for McQuade 
against Yale's great 1923 team and 
gave the Eli's a bad session in the bowl. 
Shifted to the outside, he also was a 
great pass catcher. Ralph Into, who 
played only in the 1916 season for the 
Old Liners before going into the Navy, 
doubtless would have been Maryland's 

greatest tackle had he not transferred 
to Yale after World War I where he 
earned all-America honors. 

Supplee Stands Alone 

"There was only one Bill Supplee at 
end, an amazing receiver of passes who 
tlitted like an Oriole hither and yon to 
keep his rendezvous with the ball. He 
made several all-America teams in 1923 
in recognition of his great play against 
Penn and Yale. He was called the finest 
end to play on Franklin Field that 

"Al Woods, the fleet and heady skip- 
per who can block and tackle as ca- 
pably as the 200 pounders, would make 
an ideal quarterback for the Old Liners. 



This picture is misleading as Al could do 
everything a good back should do but pass 
and catch aerials. 


"Greatest kicker of all-time" and one of 
the fleetest backs ever to play football. 

with Mackert doing the heavy blocking 
and McQuade firing those bullet passes 
on the run. McQuade whipsawed Yale's 
1923 championship outfit to a frazzle 
for three periods, mixing in knifing 
dashes with flat tosses to Supplee and 
Johnny (Boots) Groves, Maryland's 
quarterback that day. He outshone 
Yale's Bill Mallory that afternoon and 
many critics think he should have made 
the all-America team ahead of Memphis 

"The Whippet" 
"Brooke (Untz) Brewer, schoolboy 
100 and 220 yard national sprint cham- 
pion in 1915, was Maryland's most ver- 
satile back. This whippet, once past 
the secondary defense, was gone but 
not forgotten. Byrd calls him the great- 
est all-around kicker in the history of 
American football. Against Syracuse in 
1920 Brewer averaged more than 60 
yards in seven punts, one traveling 72 
yards, and kicked a 36-yard field goal 
from near the sidelines to win the 
game 10-7. 



An amazing string-bean end of lasting 
national fame. 

Two Amazing Dropkicks 

"Playing in a rainstorm on a field 
ankle deep in mud against North Caro- 
lina State in Oriole Park in Baltimore 
in 1921, Brewer booted two field goals 
from the 35 yard mark to tie the score 
at 6-all. Al Sharpe, nationally famous 
kicker for Yale in his playing days, 
who refereed the game, said the odds 
against Brewer on each kick was 50 to 1 
for the ball was water-logged and caked 
with slime. 

(Author's note: We saw these kicks 
and either of them would have been 
good from 10 yards farther back. We 
also should note here that one of 
Brewer's punts at Syracuse was made 
under extremely difficult circumstances 
as Mackert later related. 

"I failed to block out my man," 
Mackert said, "and I was sure I was 
going to be guilty of allowing the punt 
to be blocked. But Brewer calmly 
stepped to one side, kicked the ball 
underneath my arm 65 yards down the 
field over the safety man's head." 


Fullbacks come and go but he still reigns. 

L. A. Alexander, twice all-America 
guard, was captain of that Syracuse 
team, one of the best In the Orange's 
history. Brewer the next year brought 
Maryland another big upset and more 
national recognition with a 40-yard 
dropkick that jolted Rutgers, 3-0. Feats 
like that were common for him against 
teaser teams during the years he played 
for Maryland — 1916 before going into 
the Navy and in 11)20 and 1921 when 
he came back to get his degree. He 
made seven dropkicks in the L916 sea- 
son, four of them 40 yards or better.) 

"Gerald (Snitz) Snyder, who gained 
1,300 yards in 1928, mainly on Curley 
Byrd's famous fake reverse, tore Yale's 
1926 and 1928 lines to shreds to help 
down the Elis on both occasions. Louis 
(Bozie) Berger, twice all-America 
basketball player for the Old Liners 
and major league ball player after he 
finished college, deadlocked the Blue in 
1929 by 13-13 although he was a third 
stringer who didn't even know the 
signals. George (Shorty) Chalmers, ace 
passer, just told him to ran as far down 
the field as possible and he would fling 
him the ball. Chalmers did often enough 
for Berger to score twice and deadlock 
the issue." 

Many At Homecoming 

This is all Mr. Trevor had to say in 
September, 1935, but, as we mentioned, 
we collaborated in giving him the facts 
and opinions then and we could write 
all day in telling of the feats of these 
22 Old Liners. Each really merits a 
separate story. All of them, except 
Into, earned coveted Maryland degrees, 
and all are living except Mackert, the 
brilliant chap who started the physical 
education department at Maryland, and 
Col. John Simpson who was killed in 
leading a bombing squadron over Ger- 
many. We noted Brewer, Supplee, 
Burger, Krajcovic, Morris, Heagy, Mc- 
Quade, whose son was wearing No. 31 
on the football field; Woods and Wil- 
liams enjoying the Homecoming game 
October 29 and there may have been 
others of the 22 present. 

An unusual thing you will note about 
the 22 all-star selections is that throe 
of the first team— Norris, Krajcovic and 
Woods— and four of the second team 
Pease, Carliss, Berger and Chalmers 
played on the powerful 1981 eleven 
that won eight games, besting Navy, 
routing Harlow's Western Maryland 
juggernaut, 41-f>, tying Kentucky's fa- 
mous powerhouse with Shipwreck Kelly 
and losing only to Vanderbilt. 

As we noted in our opening article, 
there were no athletic specialists in 
Byrd's day and few stuck to one pas- 
time. Of the 22 only Mackert, Woods. 
Carliss, Simpson, Pease and Into did 
not shine in other endeavors. 

Most of Them Versatile 

With Supplee it also was basketball 
and track. Norris and Burger were al- 
most as good at basketball and lacrosse. 
Oberlin was a diamond ace. Krajcovic 
gained many points as a weight man 
in track. Bailey still is considered 
Maryland's top catcher of all-time. 
Brewer, we will repeat, was a nationally 


He was just as fierce an end as he looks in 
this picture. 


Aggressive and fleet 180-pound guard to 
whom 60 minutes of football was a mere 

famed sprinter. McQuade was just 
about as vicious a lacrosse defenseman 
as ever played the game. Hough and 
Crothers were just as tough in the same 
pastime, only smoother. Hough was all- 
America. Heagy also was all-America 
defense in lacrosse and a star basket- 
ball guard. Williams, too, was a stick- 
wielder of note. Morris was a four- 
letter man with baseball, track and 
basketball being his other sports. He 
played and managed in the minor 
leagues for several years. Berger and 
Chalmers came close to the top as all- 
around athletes on the grid, diamond 
and basketball court. Snyder added la- 
crosse to his football prowess. 

There certainly were several athletes 
prior to 1912 and a good many since 
1934 who must come in for considera- 
tion for all-time honors and we plan to 
discuss these in a third article if some- 
one doesn't chop our head off in the 
meantime. Right now we are thinking 
of Bob Ward and Ray Krouse. Maybe 


When tackles are mentioned his name 
heads the list. 

we can get our able prexy to again help 
us in this difficult task. 

We Could Use A Hat 

We also wish he would pay us one of 
those five hats he owes us on wagers 
regarding past athletic events at Col- 
lege Park. The last one, and Jim Tatum 
was a witness, was that D. John Markey 
didn't coach the "Farmers" in 1902. 
Gen. Markey says he did and this is 
vouched for by Harry Watts and others 
who played under him. Our hat size is 
6% and we prefer brown. 


First Lt. George W. Barnes, Jr., for- 
mer jet pilot with an F-80 unit and 
University of Maryland football player, 
is now aide to Maj. Gen. Glenn O. 
Barcus, commanding general of the 
First Air Force, with headquarters at 
Slocum Air Force Base, New Rochelle, 
N. Y. The 28-year-old officer returned 
to Maryland in July 1945, after serving 
with the 12th Air Force in Italy, and 
played quarterback. He served as as- 
sistant coach for a time before graduat- 
ing in 1948 with the degree of bachelor 
of science. After graduation, Lt. Barnes 
went to St. Mary's college, in Califor- 
nia, as backfield coach. He returned to 
service with the Air Force in August, 

Our Error, Dr. Byrd! 

We fear our esteemed friend. Presi- 
dent Byrd, is not reading our profu- 
sions in "Maryland." If he is, why 
didn't he "give us a ride" for writing 
in the last issue that Bill Kemp was 
captain in his first full year as coach 
in 1912 when it was Frank Hoffecker, 
Tom's dad, who he'd that honor? 
Kemp was captain in 1910 and finished 
his grid career in 1911 when H. Burton 
Shipley was the leader. These three 
were telling factors in helping special 
Coach Byrd upset highly favored 
Western Mary 'and in that famous 1911 
game that got Curley a permanent job 
at his alma mater and put him on the 
success ladder that he was not slow 
in climbing. 

We hope that the president will at 
least read the last paragraph of our 
article in this issue on "All-Star 
Gridders During Byrd's Regime." We 
need that hat.

ed her husband that in a generous mood 
he had promised her some household 
help when she especially needed it. He 
said she could have the help between 
Christmas and New Year's. She said 
she'd rather have it between New 
Year's and Christmas. 

A girl is Hyattsville recently ran 40 
miles. The report doesn't say whether 
the man got away or not. 

There's a girl so shy she goes into 
another room to change her mind.

to see the floor show, and then covered 
it up because he didn't like the dirty 

"I want you to explain this examina- 
tion paper. Why do you have all of your 
answers in quotation marks?" 

"Just a bit of courtesy to the man 
who sat at my left."

THERE is nothing pediculous about 
receiving an orchid like the follow- 
ing from Major General Albert L. Cox, 
Washington, D. C, a prominent alum- 
nus of the University of North Carolina 
and recently Commanding General of 
the D. C. National Guard, viz: — 

"Were I to write you each time I 
enjoyed leading 'MARYLAND,' you 
would hear from me each month. If all 
your friends did the same, you'd have 
no time for your many activities as 
you would be fully occupied in reading 
laudatory letters. However, I must say 
how much I enjoyed your editorial on 
The Value of Loyalty in the November- 
December 1949 issue. Not only that but, 
having a dictionary handy, you added 
to my vocabulary a word which I expect 
to find very useful. If Noah had not 
permitted a 'pediculus and his mate to 
board the Ark,' think what our language 
would have lost in terms of derogation. 

"Again thanking you for your fine 
editorial, which I have cut out for my

"You may remember me as Bert 
Carhart, the editor of The Diamondback 
bsck in 1942. As that ex-editor and as 
someone still in the general publications 
field, let me congratulate you on the 
constant improvement in 'MARY- 

"Each issue gets better, and incident- 
ally, the University seems to get bet- 
ter all the time, too. So give my regards 
to President Byrd, also. 

"The enclosed check is a trifle larger 
than the subscription cost for 'MARY- 
LAND, but I'm sure you can find a good 
use for it." 

A word of praise from Donald J. 
Brauner '42 Agriculture who writes, 
"Enclosed is my subscription to the 
alumni magazine 'MARYLAND.' I 
think it is doing a fine job of keeping us 
posted on alumni events." 


College Park's dirt roads will soon 
be a thing of the past. The streets are 
being macadamized. Street signs 
already have been erected and street 
lamps will soon be installed. 

"We are trying to keep pace with the 
rapid growth of the University," said 
Councilman C. R. Davis, "and adequate 
road facilities are of prime importance 
to an expanding community." 

The delay experienced in the con- 
struction of the roads was a result of 
the serious drainage problem. 

The Citizens Association of College 
Park is working with the city officials 
on various proposed plans to improve 

the appearance of College Park. Davis 
has invited representatives of campus 

Organisations and members of the stu- 
dent body to attend the Association's 
meetings and to take an active part in 
the discussion of these plans. 

"We would like students to feel at 
home during their stay here and it will 
be more enjoyable if they are acquaint- 
ed with city affairs," explained Da\

Halfback Lou Gambino, now with the 
Baltimore Colts, was Maryland's star 
in the 1948 tilt, scoring all three Terp 
touchdowns and setting a record for 
the classic with 165 yards in 22 tries. 
Roth also set a punting mark with an 
average of 44.2 yards. 

Maryland gained a total of 395 yards 
in the game, 267 rushing and 128 pass-

ferred list ever since.

legiate rating. 

With a record of five wins and t\ 
losses, three games remained to

Johns Hopkins, 4 to 2. 

Maryland became Southern confe 
ence soccer champion when it knock 
off the University of North Carolin 
1-0 at Chapel Hill. 

The Terrapins scored the game's on 
point in the first period when Marylai 
star Jim Belt tallied on a penalty kic

II Makes 'em Tough 

YOU KNOW when guys drive auto- 
mobiles with that extra horse- 
power under their sitzplatzes it seems 
to make them bigger, tougher, more 
arrogant and much more aggressive. 

Not long ago Dean S. S. Steinberg, 
of the Glenn L. Martin College of Engi- 
neering, remarked that "Every man is 
an engineer, daily, doing all sorts of 
engineering jobs, but he's never so 
much an engineer as when he gets be- 
hind the wheel of his automobile." 

So one morning not so long ago we 
were driving from our home to the 
campus, trying to be a good engineer 
without abusing the privilege of pilot- 
ing all that horsepower when, bingo, 
from our left comes a car driven by a 
fellow who, in order to keep from 
smacking us squarely amidships, tosses 
on brakes and begins to cuss us out in 
words, which by neophyte ability at lip 
reading we make out to be the words 
Mr. Truman used in initials only, but 
which Drew Pearson developed into 
"Sons of Brotherhood." 

So we slapped on our brakes too and, 
not so sure that we wouldn't change 
our mind and get back into the car 
pronto, we approached this tough- 
cussing guy real cautiously, because it 
is hard to tell, when sizing up a guy 
behind the wheel of a car whether he's 
a bantam weight or a heavyweight; one 
of Singer's Midgets or a six foot two 
tackle. Then we noted that this bird 
featured one of those "Stag at Bay" or 
"Startled Fawn" expressions and that 
his Adam's apple is bouncing up and 
down like a yo-yo. So we adduced that 
this canary has a saffron streak up a 
spine that has him sitting on one end 
and what is supposed to be his brains 
sitting on the other. 

So we told this guy that, since we 
were coming from his right at a legal 
rate of speed we had the right of way. 
Also that we had stopped at a "Stop" 
sign and, having resumed our journey, 
had a double claim to the right of way. 
We advised this bozo to perish the 
habit of getting tough just because he 
had that getaway horsepower under his 
derriere and warned that some day he 
might be caught at a railroad crossing 
with his gates down and somebody 
might smack him right between the 
eyes, seated or not. 

In the Service we often had it pointed 
out that a good rifle in a good marks- 
man's hands makes all opponents 100 
pounders, wringing wet. The same 
psychology seems to apply to some 
auto drivers who figure that a driver's 
license entitles them to leave their 
manners at home. They're the kind

We have a Maryland faculty friend 
who moans out loud that he does not 
have things as rosy as they used to be 
and that the cost of living at College 
Park has taken a vicious trend upward. 
It seems that when this buddy and his 
ever loving storm and strife wanted to 
sneak off to one of Sid Lust's Hyatts- 
ville cinema presentations, the 14 year 
old daughter would remain dutifully at 
home taking care of the baby sister. 
Thus the older child learned all about 
warming up the formula, the proper 
tangents and angles of three-cornered 
pants and how to gurgle back at the 
little gal when the latter became gurgly 
at about 10, post meridian. 

However, College Park is now an up 
and coming community and competition 
has reared its ugly head. One night a 
neighbor and his wife wanted to attend 
the movies and they asked our faculty 
friend's qualified, trained baby sitting 
daughter to do the honors for their 
baby. It did not take the little girl long 
to get hit squarely between the eyes 
with the illuminating verity that it was 
100 f 'r more remunerative to sit with 
the neighbor's infant than with her own 
little sister. When both jobs later 
popped up on the same evening it was 
up to her own daddy to meet the com- 
petition or else. 

"Now," he moans, "we have to pay 
our own daughter more to sit with her 
own sister than she'd get for doing the 
same job with the neighbor's youngster." 

Of course this is tough on our friend 
who admits that he does not enjoy look-

An essay on editors is hitting the 
type lines these days ostensibly written 
by "A Little Girl in Wisconsin." Take 
it or leave it, it goes like this: — 

"My Pa says he does not know how 
magazines and books got into this 
world and he does not think God knows, 
Pa says, because God ain't got nothing 
to say about magazines in the Bible. 
Pa says the missing link, there is proba- 
bly an editor who managed to stay in 
business during and after the flood and 
then wrote the thing up and that kept 
him and other editors busy ever since. 

"Pa says, 'If an editor makes a mis- 
take folks say he should be put in a gas 
chamber with the gas turned on but 
the editors say that if a doctor or a 
druggist makes a mistake they just 
bury the mistake and let it go at that,' 
Pa says. Doctors and druggists write to 
each other in Latin so no one can under- 
stand what they write or check up on 
them if they make a mistake, Pa says. 

"When an editor makes a mistake 
there are letters from readers and, 
sometimes Pa says, even Lawsuits and 
swearing and fussing. But if a doctor 
makes a mistake, Pa says, there is a 
funeral with flowers and plenty of 
silence. A doctor, Pa says, can use 
words three feet long without him or 
anybody else knowing what he said 
but if an editor wishes to use a long 
word he has got to spell it out. 

"If a doctor, Pa says, goes to see 
another man's wife he charges money 
for the call but if an editor pays such 
a visit he is liable to get hurt with a 
charge of buckshot. 

"Any college, Pa says, can turn out 
doctors and druggists and dentists and 
lawyers, but an editor, Pa says, has to 
be born. Pa is an editor." 


Not long ago we were asked to speak 
at a Kiwanis Club luncheon on the sub- 
ject of intercollegiate boxing at the 
University of Maryland and, as we sat 
at the table, looking over some pretty 
highclass fellows who were accomplish- 
ing things in their various professions, 
our thoughts drifted back to a Colonel

B Kiwanis club. This Colonel had one 
of his Battalion Commanders on the 
carpet for not having any men on the 
report. His diatribe went like this, "Do 
you mean to tell me that in a whole 
month not a single man has been up 
for office hours ? You have no more 
discipline in that battalion of yours 
than the Kiwanis Club!" That was sup- 
d to be funny. To this writer it 
was about as funny as the time the 
.Maine blew up or the time our best pal 
fell in a coal lighter and broke his leg. 
Of course there was not much use in 
arguing with an opinionated guy like 
that. The military-naval services are 
full of high grade fellows who are 
pretty well up on just about everything 
that goes on. However, every now and 
then you run across a self anointed 
hombre who labors under the handicaps 
of a trans-Siberian mind, — single track 
all the way to Vladivostok. He knows 
HIS stuff only and can be signed off 
with Poe's •RAVEN,' "Only this— and 
nothing more." 

No use telling a guy like that that 
"discipline" and "disciplinary punish- 
ment" constitute direct opposites; that 
a perfectly disciplined outfit IS one 
with no reason for disciplinary punish- 
ment because there have been no 
offenses committed. 

So we could not help noting that 
here at a Kiwanis Club luncheot 
met up with men from all walks of life 
who had left their businesses w r hen they 
probably should not have done so. to 
listen to a speech they did not particu- 
larly care to hear after a luncheon they 
did not particularly want, all of it for 
"the good of the ship." It came home 
rather forcibly that the Kiwanis Club 
operated on a very high level of disci- 
pline indeed, while our ranting Colonel 
seemed to be clicking along under the 
firm conviction that 2 plus 2, somehow, 
totals 3. 


In our Christmas issue we printed an 
editorial appealing to Maryland alumni 
and faculty to send help to Austrian 
children. The editorial was the result of 
a letter from Lieutenant Colonel Bob 
Walton, Maryland alumnus, stationed 
in Vienna. 

"Thanks a million." writes Colonel 
Walton, "for the editorial appeal in 
MARYLAND' for Austrian kids. The 
results were wonderful; a substantial 
response from Maryland in both cash 
and packages. The credit is all yours. 
USFA's Christmas program was well 
conducted and deserving children got 
the packages "

ing, you can never tell ivhether he

Students From Distant Shores Emphasize 
Maryland's Wide Sphere of Influence 

/»'\ Sand) Roberts ' 18 

•m T HKX Miss Alma Preinkert. 
^^ Registrar at the University of 
Maryland, announced that among those 
matriculated at the University were one 
hundred and ninety-two students from 
forty-seven foreign countries and United 
States possessions, it was suggested 
that this fact must necessarily establish 
the stature of Maryland as an institu- 
tion of wide scope and even wider in- 
Quence, particularly when these enroll- 
ments at College Park are considered 
along with the overseas branches of 
the University established in Paris, 
Zurich, Munich, Berlin, Frankfurt, 
N'urenberg, Heidelberg, and Weisbaden. 

Foreign students and countries repre- 
sented at Maryland are tabulated in the 
following summary:

In bygone years the University of 
Maryland could not have shown such an 
impressive enrollment of foreign stu- 
dents. It is significant however, that 
over a generation ago, Maryland had 
sufficient appeal to attract pupils from 
as far away as China. In 1919, Chunjen 
Constant Chen graduated from the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. Today his son, 
Yung Ping Chen, is enrolled in Mary- 
land's College of Arts and Sciences. 

Interviews with some of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland's foreign born students 
have proven interesting and enlighten- 
ing. From every corner of the globe they 
have brought knowledge to exchange for 
knowledge. Today they represent the 
world to Maryland, tomorrow they will 
represent Maryland to the world.

Bagdad is the birth place of Ali Alidul

and after having completed three years 
in agriculture school he worked for two

Agriculture. In 1947 the Iraqian Govern- 
ment gave Mr. Hussein a scholarship 
to the United States, and he enrolled at 
the Utah State Agriculture College in 

Logan, Utah. For a year he remained 
there pursuing his study of etomology, 
but at the end of that time his health 
was so affected by the snow and the 
long severe winter, that he was forced 
to seek a more temperate climate. An 
instructor who had attended Maryland 
some years ago, recommended the loca- 
tion and educational facilities of his old 
university and Mr. Hussein following 
his advice, is now enrolled in the Uni- 
versity of Maryland's College of Agri- 

Ali Hussein has made many friends 
at Maryland both among the students 
and the faculty. When he returns to his 
homeland he says that he will take with 
him a warm feeling of friendship and 
admiration for all Americans in general, 
and in particular, for his colleagues at 
the University of Maryland. 

Mohammad H. Alta'i 

Impressed with his outstanding scho- 
lastic ability, the Iraqian Government 
decided that Mohammad Alta'i should 
continue his education in the United 
States. The Univer- 
sity of Maryland 
was selected as the 
institute that he 
should attend, and 
in accordance with 
his government's 
wishes Mr. Alta'i 
arrived at College 

k!^"f Park in January, 

1949. Enrolled in

doctorate in the 
field of geography. 
On his arrival Mr. Alta'i was pleased 
both with the instructors and with the 
educational facilities that awaited him 
at Maryland. In particular he welcomed 
and respected the advice and encourage- 
ment given him by the late Doctor O. E. 

Mohammad Alta'i was born in Mosul, 
Iraq. He received his early education in 
government primary and secondary 
schools and in 1939 he entered the 
Higher Teacher's College of Bagdad. 
Graduating with honors in 1943, he 
taught for five years in a secondary 
school before coming to the United 
States last year. 

Mr. Alta'i states that he is quite proud 
to represent his country on Maryland's 
campus, and that when he returns to

Tin oni why Mr. 

El-Ibiary has elected to receive both of 
liis advanced degrees from Maryland.

Helmut Hofmann 

The son of the Chief-Master of 
Heidelberg, Helmut Hofmann was born 
in that city in April, 1926. He grew up 
in the town of Mannheim and immedia-

high school, he entered the German 
army. After the war he worked for 
several months as an interpreter for 
the United States army and when the 
Teachers College of Mannheim opened, 


Speaking of foreign students, which Sandy 
Roberts does in the accompanying text, one 
of Sandy's Chinese classmates reports that 
relatives and friends in China get quite a 
laugh out of letters written on stationery 
showing a terrapin on the letterhead. This is 
because, it is explained, in China a terrapin 
is the emblem of a husband who manages 
not to note that his wife is unfaithful to him. 

We have that sort of homo sapiens here, 
too. There was the fellow who, while visiting 
his girl friend at her home, made it a point 
to beat her to the ringing phone. Not much 
conversation ensued and the young lady 
asked, "Who was that on the phone?" "Wrong 
number I imagine," said the guy, "it was a 
fellow trying to get the Weather Bureau. All 
he wanted to know was whether the coast 
was clear." 

he applied for admission. Mr. Hofmann 
studied in Mannheim tor three seim-- 

tors and in 1947 received his tii -— t 
teaching assignment in Karlsruhr. Some 

time later he applied for an opening 
nearer his home and was transferred 
in 1948 to I.itzelsachsop, a small town 

in the vicinity of Mannheim. At Litzel- 

sachsen he taught in addition to the 
sixth grade, several advanced courses 
tor especially gifted children. 

A committee composed of members 
chosen from the American Military Gov- 
ernment and the German Ministry of 
Culture selected Helmut Hofmann to 
come to the United States for a year of 
graduate study in education. Doctor 
Daniel A. Prescott, Director of the Child 
Study Institute at Maryland, arranged 
for Mr. Hofmann to obtain a fellowship 
from the Rockefeller Foundation and 
induced him to matriculate in the 
Graduate School at the University of

For the first time since 1947, the 
University of Maryland's June, 1950 
Commencement exercises for all of 
Maryland's colleges at College Park and 
Baltimore will be held in College Park. 

The Administrative Board, upon the 
recommendation of the Public Func- 
tions Committee, headed by Dr. Thomas 
B. Symons, Dean of the College of Agri- 
culture, ruled in favor of the pleas of 
the class of '50. 

Students completing graduation re- 
quirements in February and desiring 
diplomas before the June commence- 
ment, may obtain them by submitting 
a written request to Registrar Alma H. 

More than 1,600 students of the Col- 
lege Park schools will graduate in 1950, 
constituting the largest graduating 
class in the history of the University. 
Approximately 300 of these will com- 
plete requirements for graduation in 

Plans for the commencement tenta- 
tively call for the exercises to be held 
in Byrd Stadium and there is much 
sentiment in favor of evening exercises 
under the flood lights. In case of rain, 
they will be held in the Armory or 
Ritchie Coliseum. 

The 1947 and 1948 Commencement 
exercises were held in Baltimore's Fifth 
Regiment Armory due to lack of space 
at College Park. However, last year the 
Fifth Regiment Armory was taxed to 
capacity. Byrd Stadium's seating ca- 
pacity would solve the problem and eve- 
ning exercises would probably fill the

The University of Maryland's fugi-

in London a few hours after he broke 
out of his cage. 

Harvey L. Miller, publicity director

short while after the polio-infected 
simian — shot by State police after brief 
liberty — ran into the woods near the 
College Park railway station, he had a 
trans-Atlantic phone call from a Lon- 
don newspaper. 

The conversation, as he recalled it, 
ran something like this: 

Reporter (considerably excited) — I 
say, is it true a gorilla got away from 
you people and is terrorizing the United

no! The only thing we have loose is a

monkey ? 

Miller — They tell me he's a rhesus. 

Reporter — My word, what's a rhesus? 

Miller — Well, that's an organ grind- 
er's monkey. 

Reporter — Oh, I see, organ grinder's 
monkey! I shall use that. Is he now in 
the tropical foliage? 

Miller — Mister, you've got us all 
wrong. We're the University of Mary- 
land, not Miami. We don't have any

Business In Home 

At the Spring Reunion of the Home 
Economics Alumni, an exhibition is 
planned to show how a Home Economist 
may create a business in her own home. 
This exhibit is to act as an inspiration 
and give suggestions to jrirls who have 
some spare time and wish to augment 
the family income in some way. 

If you have an idea for an exhibit, do 
plan to send it to Miss Mount by April 
10, so it may be registered in time for 
our Spring Reunion. Many girls have 
perfected a particular food item, which 
might be marketable. Others have done 
things with clothing or painting, or 
many ideas of a creative nature. 

There will be a panel of advisors made 
up of people who have had experience 
in deciding whether an article would be 
practical to put on a market for sale. 
There will also be a panel of judges to 
select articles that are on display.

In the Extension Service, College of Home 
Economics, is Doris P. Keplinger, '47, of Bel 
Air, pictured above. As Assistant Home 
Demonstration Agent in Harford County, 
Doris has, as perhaps a most interesting 
phase of her job, work to do in producing 
the 4-H broadcast over WASA, the Havre 
de Grace radio station, and in writing news 
articles concerning home economics for local 
papers. A new activity organized by Doris 
and the Assistant County Agent, is the 
county-wide 4-H Glee Club. The group has 
become popular in the area singing for com- 
munity events, and developing folk games 
and square dancing. The greater part of 
this Agent's time is devoted to work in the 
various aspects of home economics with 4-H 
clubs in which much emphasis is placed on 
demonstrations by the club members. 


The primary function of this position held 
by Gertrude Nicholls Bowie, pictured above, 
is to make available consultant service for 
the development of the school lunch as a 
part of the total educational program in 
Maryland communities. 

The school lunch provides a leaching 
situation in which the foods children need 
for proper growth are served in an appetiz- 
ing manner, and in which children learn to 
eat these foods. Therefore, improving ihe 
quality of school meals stands first among 
the supervisor's responsibilities. 

The school lunch program contributes to 
the social education of children, by provid- 
ing an opportunity to practice desirable 
table manners in pleasant atmosphere. 

Much attention is given to the planning of 
the space and equipment arrangement for 
school kitchens and dining rooms, both for 
new buildings and in existing schools. 

An in-service training program has been 
initiated to train county school lunch super- 
visors, managers, and workers in the various 
aspects of school food service. Two bulletins 
have been published for this purpose. 

The supervisor assists in ihe administra- 
tion of federal funds for school lunches in 
the State, particularly in developing policies 
of operation and approving applications for 
participation. Information is given on the 
use of the food commodities, donated to 
schools by the U. S. Department of Agri-

Nutrition Area, American Red Cross, 
for Allegheny County; also as Co- 
Chairman for the County Nutrition Pro- 
gram and Director of Consumer Educa-

ground fits Evelyn Miller very well for 
her present position of State Supervisor 
of Home Economics Education. 

She has an eye to the future; to equip 
herself for bigger things she has started 
work on her Ph.D. at Cornell University.

Drugs and medicines constitute the chief stock in trade 
of every successful drug store. It is much better to 
establish the drug store as a health center than as a source 
of supply for anything and everything. There is an 
occasional store that fills few prescriptions and still makes 
money, but there is no store anywhere that enjoys a 
good prescription business that does not make money. 
It is therefore logical that druggists make every effort to 
get all the prescription business there is to be had. 
Along with competent professional service, high quality 
prescription merchandise should be featured. The markets 
of the world offer no finer pharmaceuticals and biologicals 
than those bearing the Lilly Label. Lilly is our featured line.

Letter From The President 

Dear Alumnus: 

With sincere regrets, it was necessary 
to tender my resignation as President 
of your Chapter, effective January 31. 
This was due to developments of my 
business requiring my continued pres- 
. ence in Japan. 

^^k ^k When the Chapter 

^L was first organized 
^^^ A three years ago. your 

M Board adopted a 

W -yH> J "C W basic policy which 
I we have carried out 
- - with satisfying suc- 

cess ; namely, to 
establish and thor- 
oughly realize only 
one or two worthy 
objectives at a time. 
I trust that we can 
accept our Annual 
Roy Grelecki Education Banquet 
as a traditional alumni affair, along with 
the annual recognition by our chapter of 
the outstanding man and woman senior 
graduating in the College of Education. 
The attractive annual award plaque is 
displayed in the main lobby of the Edu- 
cation Building for all to see for decades 
to come. 

While your Board is already prepar- 
ing for the 1050 Banquet and Awards, 
primary emphasis will henceforth be 
placed on the College of Education 
Alumni Scholarship Fund. You have re- 
ceived a letter from Milton Lumsdeii. 
Chairman of the Committee, requesting 
your aid in this worthy objective. I trust 
you will jrive him your unfailing sup- 

Warren Babbitt and I have worked 
together very closely for the past year 
on all alumni matters. I can assure you 

that Warren, as your new President, 

will do an excellent job. 

I would like to thank personally all 
the members of the Board and the Edu- 
cation Faculty for the splendid work 
they have done for the College of Edu- 
cation Alumni Chapter. 

Best wishes, 

Ray Grelecki.

den as Chairman of the Banquet Com- 
mittee for the third annual affair. Milt 
was in charge of last year's successful 
program and he has promised that "this 
will be the best yet." Although no date

Industrial Education Association 

Two years ago the graduate and 
undergraduate students in Industrial 
Education formed their own club. It is 
a professional organization on the col- 
legiate level. Their purpose is to "dis- 
seminate further knowledge about the 
profession and to foster fellowship 
among those entering the field." 

In addition to its stated purpose, the 
association stimulates interest in Indus- 
trial Education and provides numerous 
opportunities for leadership develop- 
ment. Open House is the biggest activity 
of the group, but there are other notable 
achievements. The association has 
sisted the Department by cooperating 
with plans for internal improvement and 

development. A reading room has been 
provided and an Industrial Education 
Library has boon started. 

The association holds regular meet- 
ings and conducts discussions on pro- 
fessional subjects. It also aots in a 
service capacity in cooperation with 
teachers in the field. 

The association is under the leader- 
ship of tho following future alumni: 

President— Charles Kolb 
Vice President Samuel Patterson 
Secretary — Robert Poft'enberger 
Treasurer — Robert Schurmann

Nu Chapter — Iota Lambda Sigma 

Iota Lambda Sigma is a professional 
fraternity of Industrial and Vocational 
Education men. The chapter at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland was installed in 
1!»41 with 71 charter members. The 
establishment of Nu Chapter is a direct 
result of the untiring efforts and inspir- 
ing leadership of Prof. Glenn D. Brown. 

In 1938, Prof. Brown was successful 
in organizing- a group of the most 
prominent Industrial and Vocational 
Education men in the State of Mary- 
land and Baltimore City to form the 
Industrial Education Club. Prof. Brown 
was assisted by Prof. Ralph 0. Galling- 
ton, then at College Park, and Mr. John 
J. Seidel and Mr. Charles W. Sylvester. 
In 1940 the club petitioned Iota Lambda 
Sigma for a charter to form a chapter 
at Ihe University of Maryland, College 
Pa k, and Baltimore. 

Since its beginning, the Maryland 
Chapter has been one of the most active 
and progressive in the fraternity. It has 
consistently had members serving as 
national officers. Prof. Brown, who 
serves as Sponsor for Nu Chapter, was 
elected Chairman of the National Ad- 
visory Council for 1950. 

The chapter meets every month dur- 
ing the school year and conducts pro- 
grams of professional and social activi- 
ties. The purposes of Nu Chapter are: 

1. To further the purposes and ideals 
of Vocational, Industrial, and Industrial 
Arts Education. 

2. To recognize superior scholarship 
and teaching proficiency. 

3. To develop character, leadership, 
and initiative. 

4. To promote closer professional and 
social relationships. 

5. To foster advanced study, reseai'ch, 
and experimentation. 

Twenty-nine Industrial Education 
students at College Park and six promi- 
nent men throughout the state were 
initiated into the chapter at the last 

The officers of Nu Chapter are: 

President — Bernard J. Stinnett

Dr. R. Lee Hornbake, Professor of 
Industrial Education at College Park, 
has been awarded a fellowship at Har- 
vard University for post-doctoral study. 
Harvard has instituted a program of 
fellowships in education comparable to 
the Nieman Fellowships in journalism. 
Three persons were chosen for the 
initial awards, after a nation-wide sur- 
vey and subsequent competitive exam- 

The program encourages the intensive 
study of one or more educational prob- 
lems employing the broad resources of 
Harvard. Dr. Hornbake earned his M.A. 
and Ph.D. degrees at Ohio State Uni- 
versity, and is currently Industrial Arts 
Editor of the American Vocational 
Journal. He will return to Maryland for 
the 1950 summer session.

newly formed Baltimore Alumni Club 
of the University of Maryland. 

Industrial Education At Maryland 

(Note: Condensed from a paper by Don 
Maley. Instructor in Ind. Ed.. U. of Md.) 

The Industrial Education Department 
was founded in 1919 as a result of a 
need for trained personnel to go into 
the public schools of Baltimore as voca- 
tional shop teachers. The authority to 
train these vocational school instructors 
was granted by the State Board of 

Professor Maris M. Profhtt was the 
fust Head of the Department and the 
classes were started in Baltimore in 
1919 in McCoy Hall on Howard Street. 
From here they moved to the Bible 
House on Lexington Street and later to 
the Old Carroll Mansion at Lombard 
and Front Streets. Finally, classes were 
moved to the Board Room of the Uni- 
versity in the Fidelity Building. 

The first class had four members who 
were graduated in June of 1921 at ex- 
ercises held at College Park. A second 
class W8S started in 192'J and eight 

student- were graduated in 1926. Prof. 

l'rollitt taught all the courses and 
handled the administrative affairs of 

the department. During 1923-24 Mr. 
George Sandi ad as instructor in 

extension classes held in Baltimore. 
In the fall of 1926 Mr. Benjamin T. 

I. eland succeeded Prof. Proffitt as Head 

of the Department. Mr. Leland was also 
State Supervisor of Industrial Educa- 
tion. In 1927 the University established 
a two-year program to meet the 
for the increasing number of teaching 
personnel in the schools of Baltimore 
and the surrounding communities. These 
early beginnings met a need to equip 
teachers to go into the public schools 
of Maryland as vocational shop teach- 
ers. However, this was just the begin- 
ning of a KiowiiiK program which was 
soon to expand. 

Four-Year Curriculum 

Many of the students in the two-year 
course desired further professional 
training for a degree in Industrial Edu- 
cation. In 19:50 Prof. Leland and Dean 
W. W. Small of the College of Educa- 
tion evolved a plan whereby a regular 
four-year curriculum was offered lead- 
ing to the degree of Bachelor of Science. 
The first such degrees were awarded to 
ten students in 1933. In 1935 the Indus- 
trial Education Department passed an- 
other milestone. Graduate courses were 
added to the Industrial Education 

Professor Leland died in 1936 and 
was succeeded by Prof. Glenn D. Brown, 
who proceded to further develop the 
existing plans for the department. By 
1938 a large number of graduate stu- 
dents were enrolled in classes leading 
to graduate degrees with full residence 
credit being given for work done in 
Baltimore, where most of the classes 
were offered until that time. 

In 1938 Mr. Ralph 0. Gallington was 
appointed Assistant Professor of Indus- 
trial Education at College Park. A com- 
plete four-year curriculum was devel- 
oped and offered at College Park in 
addition to the classes which continued 
in Baltimore. However, in so doing it 
was necessary to utilize some of the 
shop facilities of the College of Engi- 
neering until other shops were provided 
for the Industrial Education Depart- 
ment. Mr. Gallington conducted the pro- 
gram at College Park until 1945 when 
Dr. R. Lee Hornbake was appointed to 
the position. 

Under the general direction of Mr. 
Brown, who moved his office from Balti- 
more to College Park in 1949. Dr. Horn- 
bake further developed both the under- 
graduate and graduate programs. It is 
now possible to obtain the following 
graduate degrees in the field of Indus- 
trial Education: Master of Arts. Master 
of Education, Doctor of Philosophy, and 
Doctor of Education. 

The undergraduate enrollment at Col- 
lege Park has grown from four in 1934 



Lincoln learned more by the light of 
a pine knot than mosi i>coj>1c do in a 



to ninety-two in 1948. The facilities 
have expanded and the shop activities 
have increased in similar proportion. In 
addition to the two professors, five ad- 
ditional instructors comprise the staff. 


The following is a listing of the gen- 
eral objectives of the Industrial Educa- 
tion Department: 

1. To prepare teachers for secondary 
schools in the area of Industrial Edu- 

2. To prepare leaders in the field of 
Industrial Education on a national level 
< Graduate program). 

3. To encourage and sponsor research 
pertinent to the field of Industrial 

4. To provide a service function to 
other university departments wherein 
their students need or desire instruction 
offered by the Industrial Education De- 

5. To serve as a center of exchange 
for ideas pertinent to the work of the 
teachers in service. 

6. To act in an advisory capacity to 
schools desiring help in curriculum de- 
velopment, shop planning, equipment 
selection, etc. 

7. To assist in the placement and 
follow-up of graduates. 

8. To see that Industrial Education 
students get an all-around general edu- 
cation as well as develop technical 

Other Activities 

In addition to the courses offered at 
College Park, a wide variety of couises 
are offered in such locations as Aber- 
deen, Baltimore, Frederick, Hagerstown, 
Washington, and in other areas where 
there is a need. An extensive summer 
school program is offered every year. 
This period attracts many graduate stu- 
dents and teachers in service from 
many of the eastern states. 

The department recently initiated a 
pioneering technique in training Indus- 
trial Education students pursuing the 
Ph.D. degree. There was set up an "In- 
dustrial Internship" program whereby 
the student would spend a period of six 
weeks on a full-time basis in some rep- 
resentative industry. The Glenn L. 
Martin Company at Middle River re- 
cently participated in such a training 
program which proved to be functional, 
practical, and professionally sound.

By I. Whiting Furinhold, Jr. '40 

On the Side 
M UNIVERSITY of Maryland Law- 
X^k Bchool student is successfully 
combining his campus legal curriculum 
with the operation ox two businesses in 

The student-business man is George 
K. Snyder, a member of the school's 
class of L962. 

During the Summer of l!'4t> when 
Mr. Snyder began to look for a part- 
time job, he found the employment 
situation "bad." 

"I put in a bid to run the concession 
at the Hagerstown municipal swimming- 
pool," he said, "and was awarded the 
contract. I ran the stand all summer 
and did a good business." 

The following year Mr. Snyder de- 
cided to expand his operations and 
forthwith scraped together a working 
capital of about $200. With this he 
rented a portion of a converted garage 
and opened a small confectionery store. 

Now the law student has taken over 
the whole building. His original store 
now sells ice cream, pastries and maga- 
zines, canned goods and other staple 

Mr. Snyder purchased an ice cream 
distributing franchise last year and 
now services about 60 Hagerstown 
stores. He has named this segment of 
his business, Snyder Products. The ice 
cream is the product of a Pennsylvania 

Recently Mr. Snyder opened another 
Sweet Shoppe in Hagerstown and plans 
to install a modern soda fountain. 

"My main business is the distributor- 
ship," Mr. Snyder says, "but I am very 
interested in my stores." 

Mr. Snyder has three regular em- 
ployees, a manager for each of his 
shops, and a combination truck driver- 
manager for his distributing business. 

Mr. Snyder stays in Baltimore during 
the school week, going home from Fri- 
day until Monday, "where I work most 
of the time." His parents, Mr. and Mrs. 
G. Merlin Snyder, and his brother, 
Jimmy, help him with much of his book-

Painting of the Month 
The Art Department of the College of 
Arts and Sciences is holding its second 
Annual Painting of the .Month Club Ex- 
hibition in the gallery on the third floor 
of the Arts and Sciences Building from 
January 24 to February 20, I960. The 
Painting of the Month Club was initi- 
ated during the spring semester of 1!>49, 
as part of the program to acquaint the 
greater University population and the 
public with art activities in general and 
more specifically with the individual 
efforts of the Art Department students. 
The warm response and comments which 
the Art Department received has shown 
that the initial exhibit and subsequent 
program was a success last year. 

The purpose of the second Annual 
Painting of the Month Club Exhibition 
is to select, from current work of the 
art students, five paintings. Each of 
these will be on exhibition for one month 
in the Administration Building lobby. 
The basis for the selection of the win- 
ners in the competition will be the joint 
popular-faculty vote. The art students 
whose works are selected will auto- 
matically become members of the exclu- 
sive campus Painting of the Month Club, 
receiving a special membership card. 
The selection of these paintings will in 
no way disqualify them from competi- 
tion in the final grand exhibition to be 
held at the close of the school year in 

The Ait Department gallery is open 
from 10:00 A. M. to 4:00 P. M. from 
Monday to Friday each week. Faculty 
and students of the University as well 
as the general public are cordially in- 
vited to view the Fxhibition and vote 
upon their choices for the winners. 
Maril Honored 

The University of Tennessee honored 
the Baltimore artist, Herman Maril. As- 
sistant Professor in the Department of 
Ait. College of Aits and Sciences, Uni- 
versity of Maryland, by showing an ex- 
hibition of his work at their galleries 
in Knowillc. from January 7 to 29. 

The exhibition was in the nature of a 
small retrospective show, consisting of 
twenty-three paintings, representing 
the development of Mr. Maid's work to 
the present day. It marked the begin- 
ning of the third decade since Mr. Maril 
first showed a painting at the exhibition 
in 1929 of the Baltimore Society of In- 
dependent Artists. Since then he has had 


one-man shows in New York, Philadel- 
phia, Washinyton, Scranton, and Balti- 
more as well as at several universities. 
His paintings have been shown widely 
in major exhibitions and are in the per- 
manent collections of museums, univer- 
sities and private individuals, both in 
this country and abroad. 

\-M-tant Attomej (General 

Peter (humbris, A&S '-'{5, a former 
Washington attorney, has been named 
Assistant Attorney General of New 
Mexico. While at Maryland he was an 
outstanding baseball player and man- 
ager of the football team. Before leav- 
ing Washington in l'J48 he received the 
Washington Award presented annually 
by the Junior Board of Commerce for 
rendering outstanding service to the 
community during the year. 

Klavan Keeps 'Km Awake 

Gene Klavan, A&S '48, recently rated 
a column in the Washington Post con- 
cerning his appearance on the stage of 
the Capitol Theater. Described as 
"WTOP'S delightful post-midnight disc 
jockey (12:30 to 2:00 A. M.i," Klavan 
is rapidly becoming one of the most 
popular men in this field. He has the 
ability to handle many dialects well. His 
energy is revealed by the fact he has 
made five stage appearances and con- 
ducted afternoon and night radio shows 
in the space of about twelve hours. An- 
other all-night man for a Washington 
radio station labels Klavan as unfair to 
night-time audiences since he keeps 
them awake with his humor and unusual 
records when they should be sleeping. 
To Germany 

Dr. Ray Ehrensberger, Head of the 
Department of Speech and Dramatic 
Art, College of Arts and Sciences, Uni- 
versity of Maryland, will leave the 
University on February 21st for a six- 
months' tour of duty in Germany. 

Dr. Ehrensberger will participate in 
the University of Maryland's educa- 
tional program being conducted in the 
American Occupation Zone. 

Elizabeth Hilsee Wins 

Miss Elizabeth Hilsee, art major and 
a junior in Arts and Sciences, was the 
first winner in the Second Annual 
Painting-of-the-Month Club Exhibition 
i see above). Her oil painting, "The 
Railroad Station," was on exhibit in the 
Administration Building lobby through- 
out February. Miss Hilsee, Alpha Gam- 
ma Delta, began her art work in high 
school. She plans to continue her study 
after her graduation in '51, toward a 
career in art. 

Her favorite medium is oil and she 
likes to paint landscapes and still-lifes 
best. This is the first major honor she 
has received for her work, although at 
the Grand Final Exhibition held last 
June she received an honorable mention. 

Miss Hilsee thus becomes the sixth 
member of the Painting-of-the-Month 
Club, an honor awarded to only five 
art students each year for outstanding 
work completed during the first term.

Harford County 

fTNDEB the title "Harford County, 
J Maryland: An Area of Economic 
Vitality and Contrasts," the Bureau of 
Business and Economic Research, Col- 
lege of Business and Public Administra- 
tion. University of Maryland, recently 
published a study of the economic and 
business tendencies of this county. Fea- 
tured in this analysis are the incomes 
of urban, farm and rural non-farm 
residents and their shopping habits and 

Based upon a sample including 524 
families, it was found that family in- 
comes ranged from $600 to $150,000 
annually. Nine incomes exceeded $18.- 
500, but .">;• per cent ranged from $600 
to $5,500. In addition to the analysis 
of consumer families, a survey sample 
of 1811 business proprietors, chiefly in 

Bel Air. Aberdeen, and Havre de Grace, 

was completed. The age of the business 
enterprises ranged from three months 
to sixty years. Most retailers find com- 
petition of local outlets more severe 
than outside competition, but in the 
hardware field mail-order rivalry is 

In commenting upon the findings of 
the survey, Dr. .John Ii. Cover, Director 
o{ the Bureau of Business and Economic 

Research, reported: 

'Harford County is an area of con- 
trasts in the dynamic changes of its 
economy. Descendants of old settlers 
■^petition in agriculture with 
newcomers seeking a haven from !. 
fertile land. Large estates absorb gains 

from other business ventures elsewhere, 
or. surprisingly enough, turn a profit." 
The Federal Government cuts off much 
of the county's shoreline on the Chesa- 
peake Bay. with the Edgewood Arsenal 
and the Aberdeen Proving Ground, but 
contributes employment and trade to the 
natives probably beyond alternative en- 
terprise. Horse-racing is a major indus- 
try, and the hostelries and personal 
service establishments thrive with this 
seasonal influx of participants and sport- 
ing enthusiasts.'' 

In a special analysis of consumer 
buying habits in Bel Air, the county 
seat, geographic zones were established 
at 5-mile intervals from the central 
shopping area. It was found in general 
that drawing power varies proportion- 
ately and inversely with the distance 
from the community. For instance, 
within the first 5-mile zone, almost one- 
half of all purchases by residents are 
made in Bel Air. with above average 
results obtained by retail outlets sell- 
ing food, drugs, and household articles. 
Among residents living within the zone 
5 to 10 miles from Bel Air, one of 
every four purchases normally was 
made in the city, with farm supplies, 
women's clothing, children's clothing, 
and furniture stores ranking below the 
average of ten consumer lines of mer- 
chandise. Residents of Zone III. from 
10 to 15 miles from Bel Air. habitually 
made one-eighth of their purchases in 
that community, with farm supplies 
and furniture below the average of the 
ten consumer product groups. Urban 
residents tend to purchase some of the 
consumer items in Baltimore. Farm 
consumers normally shop in the com- 


munity to which agricultural products 
are delivered or in which farm supplies 
are acquired. 

Among other conclusions derived 
from the Harford study are the follow- 

1. Harford population over a 42 year 
period has increased at an annual rate 
of 336 persons. For 1950, the population 
should approximate 42,700. 

2. District 2. including the City of 
Aberdeen, increased 154 per cent be- 
tween the Federal census years, 1900 
and 1940. The next largest increase was 
in District 3, including Bel Air, which 
gained 96 per cent. Both Districts 4 and 
5 declined in population in that period. 

3. Harford County population in- 
creased 22 per cent with the influx of 
war workers. With cessation of hostili- 
ties, migration from Harford followed. 

4. In the years since 1943, employ- 
ment in Harford retail and wholesale 
trade increased, on an average, ten 
persons monthly. 

5. Employment in manufacture in- 
creased at a rate of 19 persons monthly. 

6. Total non-agricultural employment 
increased at the rate of 44 persons 

7. Despite the increase in payrolls of 
non-agricultural firms, the purchasing 
power of these payrolls has remained 
relatively constant since the third quar- 
ter of 1946. 

8. While twenty per cent of the num- 
ber of Harford farms produced only one 
per cent of the total value of the 
County's products, seven and one-half 
of the number accounted for one-third 
of the value. 

'.'. A 1945 census disclosed 1,747 farm 
owners in the County. 177 part-owners, 
.")7 farms with managers and 218 with 
tenant farmers. 

io. Km the same census year, so par 
cent of the farm cash Income was de 
rived from the sale of livestock and 
livestock products, of which dairy prod 
acta brought 48,6 per tent, and poultry)

Retail Executives 

Dr. J. Freeman Pylo, Dean of the 
College of Business and Public Ad- 
ministration announced the formation 
of a council of retail executives to ad- 
vise the college faculty on personnel 
requirements of Maryland retail or- 
ganizations and the types of training 
and research activities needed by the 
merchandising firms. 

In the first meeting of the council, 
presidents of stores and directors of 
merchant associations of Baltimore and 
other Maryland cities discussed plans 
with the business faculty at College 
Park by which the University's retail 
training and research activities will be 
tied in more closely with the actual 
operations of the stores.

W. G. Ewald, Executive Vice Presi- 
dent of the Baltimore Merchants' Asso- 
ciation and Dr. J. Allan Cook of the 
Marketing and Retailing faculty who 
have been holding discussions with in- 
dividual retailers in recent weeks, said, 
"Some executives have suggested that 
retailing students spend a part of their 
school year in actual work in the stores, 
others feel that students should under- 
take special store research assignments

■■" '' ■■■■ 1948. He reached the 
Dr. Morrison United States in July 
of last year after a 
dramatic escape from the Communist 
regime in Hungary. Since his arrival in 
this country he has been senior special- 
ist on the staff of the Virginia Geo- 
graphical Institute at the University of 
Virginia where he has been engaged in 
research on special government foreign 
area projects. He brings to the Univer- 
sity an unusual background of experi- 
ence in European and Near Eastern 

Dr. Teleki is the son of the famous 
Hungarian geographer, Count Paul 
Teleki, who, as Premier of Hungary in 
1940, took his own life rather than 
accede to Hitler's demand that Hungary 
join in an attack on Yugoslavia with 
whom she had just concluded a treaty 
of friendship. Following in his distin- 
guished father's footsteps, Geza Teleki 
studied geography, geology, mineralogy, 
and paleontology at the University of 
Vienna and the University of Zurich in 
Switzerland. After receiving his Doc- 
degree in 1936, Dr. Teleki joined 
the staff of the Hungarian Geological 
Survey as a geologist, a position he held 
until 1940. In 1938 he was loaned to the 
Turkish Government for geological field 
work in Thrace and Anatolia in connec- 
tion with that government's search for 
petroleum. In 1989 be carried on special 
research on the bauxite deposits of 
Yugoslavia for a large private concern. 

Dr. Teleki began his teaching career 

in l'.iln when he was appointed lecturer 

in geology at the University of Cluj 

(Kolozsvar) In Transylvania. The fol- 
lowing year he becan iate Pro- 

>] of Economic Geography. His in-

raphy, in i'.»4<; he was appointed Pro- 
or of Geography on the Economic 

dty of the Technical University of 
Budapest, a position he held until just 
before his escape from Communist 

Like his father, Dr. Teleki has been 
no "ivory tower" geographer. In 1944 
he was a member of the Hungarian dele- 
gation which went to Moscow to nego- 
tiate the Soviet-Hungarian armistice. 
On his return from this difficult and 
painful assignment he became Minister 
of Education in the Hungarian Provi- 
sional Government, a post which he oc- 
cupied for a year. He has thus had con- 
siderable first-hand experience in the 
methods of the Soviet overlords of Hun- 
gary and their Hungarian stooges. 

Bilingual, in Hungarian and German, 
Dr. Teleki also speaks fluent English 
and French and is a person of broad 
culture and outlook. 

In addition to the course on the Near 
East which will be given on Tuesdays 
and Thursdays from 4:30 to six P. M., 
Dr. Teleki will conduct a special seminar 
on the geographic problems of the Da- 
nubian area for the staff and graduate 
students of the Department of Geog- 
raphy who have worked on the geog- 
raphy of Europe. 

Motor Transport 

An increasing number of college 
students are studying motor trans- 
portation, it is noted in an article in 
"Transport Topics," official organ of the 
trucking industry, by Charles A. Taff, 
assistant professor of transportation in 
the College of Busi- 
ness and Public 
Administration at 
the University of 

"More and more 
students through- 
out the country," 
he said, "seem to 
realize the impor- 
tance of the truck- 
ing industry in the 
whole fabric of our 
economics. Another 
reason for in- 
creased enrollment in such courses ap- 
pears to be the wide field of opportunity 
in the industry." 

A total of 54 students, all male, en- 
rolled in Maryland University's first 
course this year in motor transporta- 
tion, offered as an elective to students 
attending the College of Business. 

Professor Taff expects enrollment to 
increase next semester by between 15 
and 25 per cent. 

A total of 85 students — juniors and 
seniors— is majoring in transportation 
courses conducted by Dr. John H. Fred- 
erick, professor of transportation and 
foreign trade. These students are re- 
quired to take a course in traffic man- 
agement, where practical problems in 


Charles A. Taff 

National Motor Freight Classification 
and Motor Tariffs are considered. In 
addition, they are expected to take a 
course in Motor Transportation, Ocean 
Shipping or Air Transportation. 

Major problem confronting the motor 
transportation classes, according to Pro- 
or Taff, is the lack of an up-to-date 
textbook on the subject. 

"Such a book is our critical need," 
he said. "Of course, the field changes 
so rapidly that it is difficult to keep up 
with all the changes. But a good, sub- 
stantial textbook would be of inesti- 
mable help." 

Stating that he had found only one 
such book available — "and that way out 
of date" — Prof. Taff said he had to "dig 
up material wherever I can." 

"I require all of my students to read 
Transport Tapirs each week," he added. 

Invited to appear as guest speakers 
at the classes are industry spokesmen, 
including truck operators, with about 
four such speakers appearing each 

"That gives the students a chance 
to get first-hand the practical picture," 
Professor Taff said. 

In this connection, Professor Taff said 
it was of the utmost importance in the 
development of motor transportation 
courses that there be "closer coopera- 
tion" between the motor industry and 
universities giving such courses. 

The professor's interest in transpor- 
tation was whetted when he joined Tri- 
City Lines, a bus operation in Iowa, 
soon after he received his bachelor's de- 
gree from the University of Iowa. After 
two years with the bus line, he returned 
to the university to get his master's de- 
gree with the idea of teaching trans- 

His first teaching assignment was at 
Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Blacks- 
burg, where he taught economics, public 
finance and transportation for two 
years. Then followed a 45-month tour of 
duty in the Navy, after which Prof. Taff 
taught a motor transportation course at 
Kent State University, for three years 
before moving to the University of 
Maryland this year. 

"Improving Government in Silver 
Spring" is the title of a report edited 
by Professor Joseph M. Ray, Consultant 
of the Bureau of Public Administration, 
and Executive Secretary of the Mary- 
land League of Municipalities. 

The report, contained in a 44 page 
printed booklet is the latest of a series 
of such surveys made of various Mary- 
land municipalities by Professor Ray. 

There has been for some time wide- 
spread interest among the residents of 
Silver Spring on the question of incor- 
poration. One of the civic organizations 
interested in the incorporation was the 
Silver Spring Junior Chamber of Com- 
merce. Further consideration of the 
question prompted the Montgomery 
Co«inty Council to adopt unanimously a 
resolution requesting the University's 
Bureau of Public Administration to 
undertake a study of the government of 
Montgomery County, especially with re- 
lation to incorporation of Silver Spring. 
Professor Ray's report is in response to 
that request. 

Robert l>. Condon 

Robert D. Condon, Commerce '-42, was 
recently featured in the Richmond 
Times Dispatch magazine in connection 
with a Christmas wreath factory which 
he has. Condon will be remembered by 
University alumni as a member of the 
L940 relay team that won the four-mile 
championship of America. He was a 
paratrooper during World War II and 
returned home to enter the wreath- 
making' business in Roxbury, Va. The 
story states that the Christmas wreaths 
from his factory, if laid end to end, 
WOUld reach from Charles City to 
Capitol Square in Richmond. As a re- 
sult of his business. Charles City and 
New Kent County are now America's 
most prolific Christmas holly areas. The 
factory is in a group of old CCC 

The article describing the factory and 
the business closes with mention of the 
boss of the Condon household. The man 
who establishes the moods and dictates 
the domestic policies is seven-month old 
Robert Condon, Jr. Native Virginians 
say holly leaves can tell you about the 
weather. A fine crop means a hard win- 
ter ahead. The crop this year was ex- 
cellent. We are asking Bob to check on 
this prediction.

THK university school of nursing 
must be considered from the point 
of view of the students and of the 
society of which they art' a part. The 
university will give the students both 
tin- advantages of a liberal education 
and adequate preparation for their 
chosen profession. The modern univer- 
sity studies social needs, so that it may 
prepare its students to fulfill the func- 
tion of their profession in society. It is 
with this that we are primarily con- 
cerned in this paper. 

The opening paragraph of "A Pro- 
gram for the Nursing Profession" pre- 
pared by the Committee on the Function 
of Nursing, Eli Ginzberg, Associate 
Professor of Economics, School of Busi- 
ness, Columbia University, chairman, 
implies that the present nursing situa- 
tion is a "social problem." The situation 
is analyzed and a program suggested 
which should enable the nursing pro- 
fession to meet the demands made upon 
it. Radical changes are involved. The 
profession cannot rest upon its glori- 
ous, traditional heritage but must de- 
sign and implement a service to fit the 
modern need. Both quantity and quality 
of nursing service must be considered. 

The number of nurses needed by 1960 
is estimated to be over 600,000. It is 
impossible to bring the required num- 
ber of recruits into the "three year" 
schools of nursing or the degree courses. 
The answer appears to lie in the use of 
the non-professional nurse to supple- 
ment the service of the professional. 

The use of "the team," non-profes- 
sional nurses working under the pro- 
fessional bedside nurse, gives the ad- 
vantages of the case assignment method 
which has long been considered superior 
to the functional. Patients are assigned 
to the team for total care. The profes- 
sional nurse who heads the team makes 
the plan of nursing care for the in- 
dividual patient, assigns appropriate 
duties to the non-professional members, 
ami supervises while working with them 
in the care of the patient. The univer- 
sity school of nursing must produce this 
good bedside nurse who heads the team. 
She should have an adequate back- 
ground of general knowledge, ability 
for creative thought, and the scientific 
attitude and professional competency. 

The university school of nursing is 
not the only school for the education of 
nurses, but it is the logical institution, 
since it is the center of higher educa- 
tion. Nursing is not yet a science. It 
draws upon the physical and social 
sciences but makes use of the material 
in ways peculiar to nursing. In the uni- 

•ol the "procedures," as 

written in the nursing texts or pro- 
cedure books, are built on scientific- 
principles. The objective is to make 
them efficient, and so simple that they 
may l>c used by relatively inexperienced 
nurses in the care of the sick. (Prac- 
tical nurses, nurses' aides, neighbors 
and by-standers who give kindly care or 
Brat aid.) It has been demonstrated 
that a large proportion of the pro- 
cedures taught in the course in nursing 
arts can be easily mastered by non- 
professional nurses, in fact 'may be- 
come a part of folk knowledge. 

In the education of the professional 
nurse, less time is spent in the demon- 
stration room than in the past. With 
modern teaching methods, all nursing 
techniques are learned with less time 
and effort. Time formerly spent in re- 
peated practice of simple skills is now- 
used in the nursing care of a wide range 
of patients, learning to adapt the pro- 
cedure to the needs of the individual 
patient and to integrate the procedure 
in the total nursing care plan. Unless 
the school gives the student this experi- 
ence under good supervision, theory and 
class room practice will be of little 

Although procedures are being made 
more simple, nurses are called upon to 
take over many treatments which were 
formerly given by the physician. The 
psychosomatic influence of nursing care 
is known and old procedures must be 
revaluated. The result is that many 
skills cannot be acquired in the demon- 
stration room, but be learned in caring 
for the patient. Ward instruction is 
therefore of increasing importance. 

The ward instructor works with the 
student at the bedside. She gives the 
student the benefit of her years of ex- 
perience. The patient is safeguarded 
from the mistakes common to students 
who are still learning to apply skills 
mastered in the demonstration room to 
the care of the living patient, or giving 
for the first time a treatment which 
could be discussed and observed in class 
or clinic but not practiced other than 
on a living patient. As the student 
progresses, the ward instructor reveals 
to her the full content of good nursing 
care while working with her at the 
bedside. They participate in a common 
project, in which more and more re- 
sponsibility is assumed by the student 
as she develops the ability to give the 
patient the care he needs. The public 
health aspect is shown in the classroom 
and influences the care of the patient 
in the hospital. Obviously the students' 
clinical experience must include the 
nursing care of a wide range of cases. 

Thus nursing students are taught by 
the sound educational methods used in 
the preparation of other professional 
workers. If the four year plan is used, 
the student of nursing is prepared for 
the first level position in the same num- 
ber of academic years as teachers and 
aides in social agencies. The profes- 
sional degree in public health nursing, 
administration, nursing education or 
supervision require graduate study. 

The university school of nursing, 
then, gives the student the advantage 


of a liberal education, and professional 
preparation to meet a clearly defined 
social need, through highly specialized 
courses of study and selected experi-

Mario de la Torre 

On completion of the MeGraw con- 
struction project in New Guinea — a 
road and oil pipe line for the develop- 
ment of two oil fields — last year, Vice- 
president F. J. Mayo received the fol- 
lowing letter from the Netherlands New 
Guinea Petroleum Company for whom 
the construction was done: 

"We wish to extend to you our appre- 
ciation for the manner in which your 
company has performed the road build- 
ing program under the prevailing diffi- 
cult working conditions .... (it) has 
been an outstanding job. Although in 
the beginning, difficulties were encoun- 
tered . . . this situation changed entirely 
thanks to the arrival of Mr. de la Torre. 
The spirit in which he cooperated with 
our company greatly contributed to the 
speed and quality of the construction of 
the roads, as )cell as to the training 
given to our own roadbuildcrs." 

This is only one of many feathers in 
the de la Torre cap. He earned another

— one of the greatest challenges of

During the war, while working for 
Pan American Airways, Del headed up 
an expedition to search for a B-24 that 
had been forced down in the jungle. 
Having located the missing plane by 
aerial survey, the search party set out 
by motor launch and native canoe up 
the Acara River and a smaller tribu- 
tary. Abandoning the eanoea they be- 
gan a four-day perilous trek through 
the matto. On the way Del. climbing a 
cliff, reached over the lop and blindly 
groped for a tree root with which to 
pull himself up. Instead of a root his 
hand closed around a deadly bushmas- 
ter snake which struck instantly, sink- 
ing its fangs into the tip of Del's left 
index finger. To save his life the sea- 
soned engineer took his pistol and shot 
off the envenomed finger just below the 
snake bite. After sucking the lethal 
poison out of the wound he went on 
with the search and shortly afterwards 
found the missing plane. 

Born in Quito, Ecuador, in 1909, Del 
is a South American whose education 
and training have been divided between 
the U. S. and Ecuador. He attended 
grammar school for four years in Bal- 
timore and later studied civil engineer- 
ing at the University of Maryland, re- 
ceiving a B.S. degree in 1931. Between 
these stretches of American schooling, 
he attended Colegio Xacional Nejio in 
Quito. Before joining F. H. MeGraw i: 
Company of New York. N. Y. in 1945 
as chief engineer on the Cochabamba- 
Santa Cruz highway in Bolivia, he 
worked most in S. A. as a construction

College o( 


Paris Summer Workshop 

IN COOPERATION with the French 
Ministry of Education, the Univer- 
sity of Maryland will co-sponsor a six- 
week summer workshop in Education 
to be held at Sevres, a suburb of Paris. 
France. Dr. George ,1. Rabat, Dean of 
the College of Special and Continuation 
Studies, and Dr. Henry Breckbill, As- 
sistant Dean of the College of Educa- 
tion, made this announcement which 
comes as a welcome answer to those 
teachers who may be wondering what 
they would like to do this summer, or 
where they would like to do further 
study in Education during the summer 
recess. Here is an opportunity to study 
in an enriching and stimulating atmos- 
phere, while earning six hours of credit 
in Education at the University of Mary- 
land. The exchange of ideas with the 
French teachers who will attend the 
workshop should prove an invaluable 
and refreshing experience. 

Dr. Georges Roger, Inspector General 
of Secondary Education for France and 
her colonies, who lectured in French and 
English on the Maryland campus in 
early November is working out the de- 
tails of this program with Dean Rabat. 
Plans are being made to accommodate 
fifty American teachers who will live in 
a dormitory with French teachers for 
four of the six weeks. The first two 
weeks, from July 2-14, will be spent in 
visiting French schools. Following this 
period of orientation will be a full 
month of lectures and discussion. French 
lecturers and professors will lecture in 
French for those who can "compree" 
and in English for those who can- 
not. By way of rounding out this pro- 
gram, tours of Paris and nearby points 
of interest will be included. Upon com- 
pletion of the six weeks' workshop, the 
seventh week will be devoted to visiting 
the home of a French teacher. After 
that, the teachers will be free to travel 
on their own or come home. 

The cost of the round trip, including 
ship fare, board and room, tuition and 
incidental expenses up to $100, is ap- 
proximately $718.00. The sailing date 
will be between 18 June and 25 June,

Maryland In Germany 

Americans in Berlin continue to show 
a keen interest in the college courses 
sponsored by the University of Mary-

for the second term which show a total 
of 210 individuals registered.

Prof. David Sparks, a native of Los 
Angeles. Calif., and his wife. Dr. Phyllis 
Sparks, of Appleton, Wis. (pictured above), 
have arrived in Berlin to leach during the 
second term at the University of Maryland 
branch established by Col. James T. Duke, 
Post Commander, an alumnus of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland. 

Mr. Sparks was graduated from Grinnell 
College in 1944 with an A.B. degree. He con- 
tinued his studies at the University of Chi- 
cago where he received an M.A. and com- 
pleted most of his work toward a Ph.D. 

Professor Sparks joined the staff of the 
University of Maryland in 1947 and arrived 
in Germany with his wife in the fall of 1949 
as Professor of History. 

Mrs. Phyllis Sparks was graduated from 
Purdue University in 1944. She then began a 
course of study at the University of Chicago 
where she received her M.A. in 1946 and her 
Ph.D. in 1948. 

Dr. Sparks was not affiliated with the Uni- 
versity of Maryland prior to her arrival in 
Germany as Professor of Economics. 

In some ways, the Sparks' say, they have 
found that the E.C. students have the jump 
on their Stateside counterparts. 

"Students here," said Professor Sparks, 
"are better informed. Their background has 
been enriched by many valuable experiences 
to which students at home are never ex-

Civilization taught by Prof. David S. 
Sparks, of the University of Maryland 
staff. Some of these students also are 
among the 33 enrolled in the course on 
the Fundamentals of Economics con- 
ducted by Dr. Phyllis S. Sparks, who 
came from the University of Chicago. 

The class in Elementary German 
under Dr. Wilhelm Franke has an en- 
rollment of 46. 

"Although the enrollment is 14 less 
than for the first term, it is encouraging 
because of the reduction in the number 
of Americans in Berlin due to the liqui- 
dation of OMGUS and the establishment 
of HICOG headquarters in Frankfurt," 
Capt. E. A. Moorer, Berlin Military Post 
Information and Education Officer, said. 

"It shows that occupation personnel 
are keenly interested in using their 
spare time to enlarge their education by 
taking the courses offered here by the 
University of Maryland." 

Enlisted men, of whom 101 are en- 
rolled, comprise almost half of the total 
registration which includes 83 officers 
and 26 civilians. Of this total, 42 are 
new students who were not enrolled 
during the first eight-weeks term which 
ended December 23.

OapJ Sound J 
Dr. o. EL Baker 

professor of geography at the 
University of Maryland, died unex- 
pectedly at his home in College Park, 

His ashes were scattered over his 
favorite pasture at his 250-acre farm 

near Now Market,

and conducted re- 

Dr. Baker wont 
to the University 
of Ma r yl and i n 
1942 to build up 
the department of 
geography. Ho was 
head of the depart- 
in ent until last 
July, when ho re- 
linquished the job 
to devote more 
time to research. 

Dr. Baker and 
Dr. Charles Hu, 
professor of geography at the Univer- 
sity, were working on an atlas of China 
and an atlas of world resources. 

Although no longer head of the geog- 
raphy department, he continued teach- 
ing in North American geography, land 
utilization and population problems. Dr. 
Baker conducted one class in land eco- 
nomics at his home on Thursday nights, 
always in front of a fireplace. 

Dr. Baker spent 33 years with the 
United States Department of Agricul- 
ture before he went to the University 
of Maryland. He started out in farm 
management and left the Government 
as senior agriculture economist. 

Dr. Baker was an authority on world 
populations and had conducted special- 
ized surveys in farm population, rural 
youth and soil. 

In 1947 Dr. Baker wrote a pamphlet 
on "The Population Prospect in Rela- 
tion to the World's Agricultural Re- 
sources." In this he predicted the United 
States would be dominated by Russia 
within a century because luxury and a 
declining birth rate was weakening the 
country. He also predicted a United 
Europe with 10 times the population 
of the United States. This paper was 
featured in "MARYLAND" magazine 
and reprints were needed to fill requests 
from all over the world. The article 
was also used as text in the Military 
and Naval Academies as well as in the 
Army and Navy War Colleges. 

Dr. Baker was a past president of the 
Association of American Geographers. 
He was a member of the American 
Meteorological Society, Farm Economic 
Association and the American Sociolog- 
ical Society. 

He wrote Agriculture Department 
yearbooks and was co-author of "The 
Climate of Wisconsin and Its Relation 
to Agriculture," "Geography of the 
World's Agriculture" and "Agriculture 
and Modem Life." 

Dr. Baker was horn in Tiffin, Ohio, 

the sou of Edwin Baker, a Capo Cod 

sea captain, and Margaret Thomas 

Baker, a Vermont school teacher. He 
was graduated from Heidelberg College 

and studied forestry at Vale and eco-

To the President 
University of Maryland 

Dear Sir: 

With deepest grief I heard of the 
passing away of Professor Oliver E. 
Baker. Allow me to express my sin- 
cerest sympathy on the great loss your 
university has suffered. 

I had the great privilege to know 
Oliver Baker since 1934. His grand 
scientific work has always been admired 
in this country. And whoever knew the 
man, felt more than admiration. His 
personality awakened respect, sym- 
pathy and love. One should perhaps not 
use this word too much; but Baker was 
a lovable man, if ever there was one; 
unselfish, sympathetic, kindhearted and 
helpful. To me he was the truest of 
friends. When I was in greatest need, 
he was the first to help. And I know I 
am not the only one in Germany who 
feels great grief. He made friends 
wherever he went, he himself being a 
great ambassador of human kindness. 

I would be very grateful indeed if you 
would convey my deepest sympathy to 
his family. 

Yours sincerely, 

Max Rolfes.

Maryland faculty many years ago. 

Mr. Darrow was on the Maryland 
faculty before World War I, when the 
College Park school was known as 
Maryland State Agriculture College. He 
was the first full-time YMCA secretary 
at College Park and during World War 
I served as a YMCA seci'etary at Camp

Clarence A. Reed, 69, former membei 

of the Maryland faculty and nut culture 

expert for the Department of Agricul- 
ture, died in Lakeland, Fla.. recently. 
He had been ailing for several years, 
and retired in 1947 after 40 years' scien- 
tific work with the government. 

Dr. Reod, a native of Howell, Mich., 
was credited with developing two varie 
ties of improved filberts and with much 
of the groundwork for the creation of 
the paper-shell pecan. Most of his four 
decades with Agriculture's bureau of 
plant industry were spent in improving 
the varieties and culture of nuts. 

He was a graduate of Michigan State 
college, and before entering govern- 
ment service in 1907, was employed by 
a Midwestern landscaping firm and on 
the horticultural staffs of the University 
of Maryland and the University of West 
Virginia agriculture experiment station.

Dr. Edwin P. Rohrbaugh, '81, died recently 
in Casper, Wyo. at the age of 91. He was a 
pioneer of the Western frontier. In 1947 he 
visited the University of Maryland. II was 
at this time he learned that he was one of 
two surviving members of the medical 
school's class of 1881. The other is Dr. Harry 
G. Prentiss, of Baltimore. He was surgeon 
for the Union Pacific Railroad. In 1891 he 
moved to Cheyenne, Wyo. as surgeon of the 
Union Pacific. Later he moved to Casper, 
Wyo., and was appointed surgeon for the 
Chicago and Northwestern Railroad. 

His career as a frontier doctor was filled 
with many hair-raising episodes in which 
his life was endangered by roving bandits 
during his long horseback rides to visit his 
patients. Being surgeon at railroad camps 
also gave the doctor much practice treating 
stabbing wounds which resulted from fre- 
quent camp fights or bandit raids. 

Of the hundreds of confinement cases, he 
never lost one. Neither did he have the aid 
of a nurse. 

Surviving children are: Harry Rohrbaugh. 
of Harrisburg, Pa., Mrs. Anna Collins, of 
Douglas, Wyo., and Mrs. Ada Cunningham, 
of Casper.

"Finding the answer to a problem Lb 
only half the job," graduate students in 
Horticulture are told at the University 
of Maryland. Dr. I. C. Haut, head of the 
department emphasizes that the re- 
search worker must be able to "tell 
others who can use the information, or 
cooperate to the fullest with those 
whose job it is to do this." 

Putting this belief into practice, the 
department has expanded a course on 
".Methods in Horticultural Research" to 
include information on the writing of 
scientific articles, the preparation of 
project outlines, written and oral pre- 
sentation, public relations, and popular 
dissemination of scientific facts. Effec- 
tive college teaching methods have also 
received consideration. 

This year Dr. L. E. Scott, who assists 
in teaching the course, led off with the 
"whys and hows" of project preparation 
with a discussion of outlines, write-ups, 
and reports. Considerable emphasis has 
been given to the scientific article with 
the "grads" learning the correct forms 
as well as improved methods of ex- 

Dr. Scott describes as "sermons on 
the mount" the talks on public relations 
and responsibilities of the research 
worker, the extension specialist, and the 
college teacher given by Dr. Haut. Ex- 
tension editor, Arthur E. Durfee, was 
brought in to discuss ways and means of 
giving broad distribution to new in- 
formation found in the laboratory.

April 29 is Date With Washington and Lee 

as Baseball Foes and Princeton 

in Lacrosse. 

APRIL 29 was chosen as the date of 
the "M" Club's annual spring 
meeting and sports day at College Park 
at a session of the Board of Governors 
on February 7 in Rossborough Inn. 
headquarters of the Alumni Associa- 
tion. Here in brief is the program that 
was outlined: 

1 P. M. — Baseball: Washington and 

3 P. M. — Lacrosse: Princeton Uni- 

5:30 P. M. — Annual meeting and elec- 
tion of officers. 

6:30 P. M. — Dinner in University Din- 
ing Hall. 

There also will be a tea for the women 
folk following the lacrosse struggle. 

The sports program and the setup of 
an afternoon ball game and a night 
lacrosse battle should suit the lettermen 
and others to a T. Both contests are 
highly attractive. Washington and Lee 
is one of Maryland's oldest and leading 
Southern Conference rivals while Prince- 
ton, along with the Old Liners, is in- 
cluded in the "Big Five" stick teams of 
the Nation. Last year the Terps whipped 
the Tigers, 8 to 5, in a redhot sera]) at 

It was decided that there would be 
only one listed speaker and that an at- 
tempt would be made to obtain some 
outstanding figure in the sports realm. 
Any suggestions as to a suitable person 
would be welcomed by Larry Small- 
wood, chairman of this committee. 

It was the feeling of the meeting that 

with the progress made recently by the 
Washington and Baltimore chapters of 
the "M" Club and the general enthusi- 
asm throughout tin- ranks of the letter- 
men that the affair on April L".» should 
be by far the best ever held. 


President "Pop" Wharton presided at 
the meeting, and, after a number of 
other matters were discussed and p;; 
upon, the various committees to handle 
the annual event were appointed as 

Dinner — Bob James, Bob Smith and 
Jimmy Stevens. 

Speaker — Larry Smallwood, Eddie 
Daly and Ralph Shure. 

Publicity and Program — Bill Hottel, 
Heinie Miller and Charley Ellinger. 

Entertainment — Sully Krouse, Rip 
Hewitt and Fred Hetzel. 

Registration — Ossie Beck, Doyle 
Royal and Ernie Cory. 

Tea for Ladies — Bill Supplee, Burt 
Shipley and Jim Shumate. 

Invitations and Awards — Al Heagy. 
Ford Loker and Mike Stevens. 

Nominating — Roy Skipton, Frank 
Cronin and Benny Alperstein. 

After the meeting quite a few of the 
boys went to Zalezak's for a little snack 
where the group was well entertained 
by Shipley recounting the various 
phases and vicissitudes of his recent 
kidney operation. Even Dr. Ford Loker 
got a kick out of it. Incidentally, Ship is 
as good as new and will be pacing up

Gone But Not Forgotten 

l!\ Irtluir l)<ilc\ 

In Sports of the Times" (New York Trim's) 

ADMITTEDLY, it's the wrong waj 
to operate. It puts the carl before 
the horse. The usual system in the - ; 
ing of testimonial dinners is to select 
a guest o( honor ami then arrange the 
affair so that proper tribute can be paid 

to him. Hut the \*e\v York chapter of 
the Baseball Writers Association has 
been doing things backward for the bet- 
ter part of a decade. It originally hit 
on the idea of holding some brisk eating 
and drinking practice a fortnight before 
its annual banquet and show. Then it 
began looking for someone to honor in 
order to have an excuse for it. 

The press box tenants didn't particu- 
larly want to pay their respects to the 
best pitcher, the best hitter or the best 
anything-. In a way this was the nicest 
dinner of them all. Performance didn't 
count. The victim they always chose as 
their guest of honor was a chap for 
whom they held a deep and abiding af- 
fection, fellows like Eddie Brannick, Mel 
Ott, Barney Shotton and some of their 
own veteran members. The only quali- 
fication was that he was a great guy. 

There will be another of these private 
parties at Toots Shor's. The only ones 
present will be the baseball writers and 
a few- carefully selected baseball people. 
There's nothing formal about it. In fact, 
the main guest is as liable to be insulted 
as praised. But even the ribbing is an 
obvious disguise which cannot hide the 
shameless sentimentality motivating the 
affair. The object of their affections 
this time is Charlie Keller. 

Wrong Label 

Leo Durocher to the contrary, there 
are plenty of "nice guys" in the big- 
leagues and not all of them finish last. 
One of the nicest of them is the Uni- 
versity of Maryland Strong Boy, a 
hulking brute who looks forbidding- 
enough to scare little children. But he's 
sweet (in a manly way, of course) and 
gentle and tender and considerate. He's 
class from the top of his head to the tips 
of his toes. 

In every business and in every sphere 
of life there are generally a few small- 
minded and mean-souled creatures so 
eaten by jealousy, envy and their own 
petty hates that no one ever elicits a 
kind word from them. Baseball also has 
its share of these warped and cantan- 
kerous misanthropes. Yet in all of Char- 
lie Keller's eleven seasons in the major 
leagues not a single nasty word has 
ever been uttered about him. No other 
ball player can make that statement. 

Almost a Reproach 

The closest anyone ever came to giv- 
ing him the verbal harpoon was after 
the 1939 world series when the Yankees 
trampled over the Cincinnati Reds in 
four straight. The Maryland Strong 

Boy bad been a terror in that series, 
hitting .438, slamming out three homers 
and driving in six runs. The cry already 
bad begun to arise "Break tip the 
Yankees!" But some unidentified li»-< 1 
leg varied the plea slightly. Said he: 
"Break up the Yankees? I'd be satisfied 

if they'd just break up Keller." 

With him, though, every knock is a 

boost. Actually this was not a knock but 

was a left-handed tribute. Furthermore, 

he continued to grow in the esteem of 
everyone— friends (teammates), foes 
(the other ball players) and the neutrals 
(the writers). More and more they grew 
to appreciate the innate decency of the 
man, his complete unselfishness and all 
his sterling traits of character. 

In the ordinary course of events 
Father Time taps an athlete on the 
shoulder and beckons him to begin tod- 
dling the downhill road. There is a 
momentary ripple of dismay among the 
players and the fans and then he is for- 
gotten. But there was a genuine sweep 
of profound regret by everyone when 
Keller voluntarily permitted himself to 
be exiled to Newark in midseason last 
year. It was typical of him that he even 
went there. 

A Ten- Year Man 

Since he was a ten-year man, he could 
not be sent down to the minors without 
his consent. But Charlie knew that his 
injuries had so hobbled him he no longer 
could deliver for the Yankees in his ac- 
customed style. So he accepted his ban- 
ishment in the hope that he could re- 
cover his old skills by playing every 
day. Sure enough, he returned, even 
though his pennant contributions were 
slight. The handwriting was manifestly 
on the wall for him when he failed to 
break into the line-up even as a pinch- 
hitter in the world series. 

So the Yankees gave him his release. 
Contrary to popular impression, this 
was not a harsh move. It was a kind one. 
The Bombers could have kept him and 
peddled him somewhere at a price. In- 
stead, they cut loose their strings on 
him in most generous fashion so that 
this loyal son could make his own deal 
and pocket whatever profits he could 

Keller signed with the Detroit Tigers. 
Ironically, the Bengals have the best 
outfield in the majors in Hoot Evers, 
Johnny Groth and Vic Wertz. The Kel- 
ler of old could have broken into it, but 
not the old Keller. Yet it is a highly 
satisfactory transaction for him in 
many respects. 

Ideal College Coach 

He will be reunited with his old 
Yankee buddy, Red Rolfe, the manager 
of the Tigers. Although nothing ever 
has been formally announced, it's a 
cinch that he'll stay. If he can't make 


the team as a player, he'll make it as a 
coach. Perhaps he even has the man- 
agerial bee somewhere in the back of 
his bonnet, although the belief here is 
that the University of Maryland alum- 
nus would be perfect in a college coach- 
ing job. He's the type of fellow you 
would want to have influencing your 
son during his most impressionable 

From the very moment it was re- 
vealed that Charlie would be switching 
to Detroit, the conviction grew that the 
baseball writers in our town would 
never let him escape without tossing 
him some sort of shindig as a farewell 
salute. The typewriter pounders pre- 
tend to be hard-boiled, but they're not, 
and no athlete ever hit them with as 
much emotional impact as Keller unless 
it could be Tommy Henrich, another 
pea from the same pod. 

But it isn't often that the boys have 
the opportunity of paying tribute to 
someone like Charlie Keller. He has 
enriched everyone who has known him. 


The following are quotes regarding 
Maryland's great Charlie Keller from 
"Graham's Corner," by Frank Graham 
in the New York Journal American: — 

Said Joe DiMaggio, "I'll tell you the 
kind of fellow Charlie was on our club. 
Even when he was out of the lineup for 
a long time he helped us. You know, 
when a fellow on our club pitches a 
good game or has a good day out there 
and makes four or five hits, everybody 
slaps him on the back. 

"Charlie would slap a fellow on the 
back when he had a good day, too. But 
the ones he went looking for in the 
clubhouse after a game were the fel- 
lows who had had a bad day. And that, 
believe me, is when it counts most. 
Charlie would sit down with a fellow 
who was in the dumps and talk to him 
and cheer him up and the next day you 
would see the fellow out there inspired. 
I'm glad to be able to tell about him 
tonight. He's a great ball player and, 
in my book, a great man." 

Tommy Henrich added, "I am proud 
to have played in the outfield with 
Keller and DiMaggio, an outfield that 
some of you have been kind enough to 
say was pretty good. What w-as that

Gator Bowl Ends Greatest Grid Season

lARYLAND'S football 
team finished its I 
campaign in the history 
of the pastime at Coll< 
Park in a blaze of glory 

when il almost com- 
pletely BUbdued .Missouri 

in the Gator Bowl game 
m Jacksonville, Fla., on January - by 
the Bcore of 20 to 7. 

This gave the Terpa a record of nine 
victories againsl a lone defeat and a 
position high on the national list. Prior

a poll been taken after the howl game . 

Maryland doubtleas would have been 

well up among the first ten. Missouri. 
ill the regular season had held Ohio 
State to a 35-34 win and the latter con- 
quered California in the Rose Howl at 
Pasadena, 17-14. Then, too, Oklahoma, 
which heat Missouri 27-7, simply wreck- 
ed Louisiana State in the Sugar Howl, 
36 0. 

Maryland's brilliant and alert defense, 
more than its attack, ruined Missouri. 
It was the defense that made it rather 
easy for the Terps to get three touch- 
downs in the first half and then coast 
to an easy triumph. In fact, Maryland 
might easily have had two or three more 
scores with a little better direction and 
if the Terps had possessed a passer of 
the skill of Phil Klein, the Missouri 
quarterback, it would have been a 

Some Pertinent Comment 

Here is some interesting and very 
descriptive comment by Francis Stann 
of the Washington Star: 

"It was a Jim Tatum triumph against 

a Missouri team which had scored at 
least three touchdowns against every 
opponent except Oklahoma. The Mary- 
land squad throttled the Tigers so com- 
pletely it wasn't a contest. It was more 
one-sided than the score indicated. 

"It was difficult to believe that 
Missouri was the eighth ranking team 
nationally in total offense. It was diffi- 
cult to believe that the Tigers were the 
team that gained • r >07 yards against 
Ohio State. 

"So completely smothered was Mis- 
souri's attack that in the wake of the 
affair even Tiger supporters were com- 
paring Maryland favorably with Okla- 
homa which ranked Xo. 2 in the coun- 
try. Certainly Oklahoma had no better 
side of a line than Maryland's left side, 

composed of End Elmer Wingate, 
Tackle Hay Krouse and Guard Bob 
Ward. It was just as well that Maryland 
lacked a real passing attack. It was too 
one-sided as it was." 

Defence Sets lp Scores 

Maryland's three touchdowns were 
set tip by the- defense. The first came in 
the opening period when .Johnny Idzik

They really put on a show at the Gator Bowl football game in Jacksonville. The elaborately 
planned program, which began at noon, two hours and 15 minutes ahead of game time, in 
eluded 19 bands and a number of drill units. 

During these ceremonies, Carolyn Lindstrom. an attractive blonde from Landon High 
School of Jacksonville, was crowned Gator Bowl queen and the crowd thrilled to the marching 
bands and the maneuvers of the colorful and dashing drill outfits. 

All of the 19 bands and their majorettes were on the field at halfiime. as shown above. It 
outdo the rainbow in color. To the chagrin of the football coaches they took up more thai 
half an hour instead of the usual IS minutes. Particularly spectacular was the twirling o 
batons in unison by 140 performers without a fault. 

In tribute to the two universities, the Lee and Jackson high school bands joined to form < 
large "M" twice, once to piay the "Missouri Waltz" and again to strike up with "Maryland 
My Maryland." 

A colorful pro-game novelty was staged by the Lee band forming the dial of a clock wilt 
the seconds ticking away while "As Time Goes By" was played. 

The game and festivities were marked by coincidences. In addition to the letter M 
signifying both teams, the nicknames of both also began with the letter "T." the Missour 
Tigers and the Maryland Terrapins. Both teams used the split T formation, both had thi 
same school colors, gold and black, and both captains — Bob Fuchs of Missouri and Fred Davii 
of Maryland — wore the number 54. Incidentally, they were on the radio together the nigh 
before the game and became good buddies. 

Missouri had the privilege of wearing its regular colors, two shades of gold uniforms wilt 
black letters, while Maryland wore red jerseys and silver pants, two other colors embodiec

the ball to the 1-yard line hut the Terps 
were offside and penalized back to the 0. 
At this point. Shemonski repeated on 
the same play that was used to score 
the first touchdown. 


Aside from its scoring ventures 
Maryland penetrated to Missouri's 17

ing failed to click on three of these oc 
casions and they fumbled the ball a\va>

yard line only twice all day, finally wenl

tance. Klein "sneaked" over for th< 
counter and Glorioso added the Ttr

Ward, who was voted the outstanding 
player of the game, the first time in tht 
five-year history of the affair that t

the time.

mittee, and Mrs. Darby; Tom King, pub-

The grand finale was a banquet and 
dance at the George Washington Hotel 
at which the players of both teams re- 
ceived gold watches and were enter- 
tained to the limits. It was the kind of 
an affair that had yours truly sitting in 
a comfortable chair in the lobby for the 
last two hours awaiting transportation 
back to Ponte Vedra for the final night 
of a delightful sojourn.

Maryland had close to 1,000 rooters 
at the game and the official party in-

William P. Cole, chairman of the Board 
of Regents; Peter Chichester, Philip C.

Mr. and Mrs. Dizzy Mathias and Dr. 
Turk Adams, president of the Terrapin

to rendezvous at Ponte Vedra. Graduate 
Manager Bill Cobey, his wife and chil- 
dren also were there, completing their 
stay by r visiting her home in Quincy, 
Fla., in the western part of the State. 
Mrs. Tatum and the wives of other 
coaches also were in on the finish. 

There, of course, were many other 
rabid supporters of the Terps on hand 
for a stay of several days. In fact, they 
were entirely too numerous to mention 
in full. And needless to add, "a good 
time was had by all." 

And the thanks of the Maryland con- 
tingent goes to Maury Fitzgerald of the 
Washington Times-Herald, Francis 
Stann of the Washington Star, Moe 
(Irish) Siegel of the Washington Post

last issue did not include the 13-0 victory 
over Miami of Florida on December 2. 

Maryland strictly was on the spot in 
this contest as it previously had been 
picked to play in the Gator Bowl re- 
gardless of the outcome of this game. 
The Terps proved to be the much su- 
perior team but had some jittery mo- 
ments before getting the clinching score. 

It looked like easy pickings when 
Tucker piloted the Terps 79 yards for a 
touchdown after taking the opening 
kickoff but Dean missed the extra point 
and this caused some nervous moments 
before the game was iced. 

Miami, which was held in complete 
subjection in the first half, caught fire 
in the second half and got to Maryland's 
19 yard line before a pass interception 
by Vern Seibert ended the agony. This 

was the lone time the Terps really were 
in danger but with only a 6-0 lead it was 
a ticklish spot. 

Then Lavine piloted the team 51 yards 
for the touchdown that cemented the 
issue, a short pass to Modzelewski being 
the finishing shot. This time Dean con- 
nected. He could have saved a lot of 
headaches had he reversed his point-

Toward the end of the season there was 
considerable comment that Ward stood out 
greater than Krouse. Maury Fitzgerald, of

with, "Krouse made Ward look good and 
Ward made Krouse look good. They were a 
terrific team." 

Looking over the great players, all seniors, 
who made AP's first team, some Terp fans 
admit that Krouse belongs on the second 
team and should make the first team next 
year, but few can figure out why Ward got 
only honorable mention. 

The screwiest piece of hokus-pokus is that

Part of the 200 man boxing class that turned out for the 1950 season ring sport at the 
University of Maryland is shown above, "putting on the gloves" for the first time. 

In the foreground, left to right, are Colonel Heinie Miller, Maryland's boxing coach who, 
in 1950, entered his 50th year of direct association with boxing; Assistant Coach Frank Cronin; 
Assistanl Coach Eddie Rieder and student assistant Johnny Walker, former Navy boxer. 

Neither Maryland nor nearby District of Columbia enjoys boxing at the high school level 
and some of Maryland's best boxers have been developed from the neophyte stage pictured 
above, notably Frank Cronin, Newton Cox and Eddie Rieder, all three Southern Conference 
champions who laced on their first pair of gloves while students at Maryland. 

The Physical Education basic class pictured here develops into the intra-mural competi- 
tive stage, after which promising material is retained for further schooling for varsity, junior 
varsity and freshman teams. 

Basic boxing is compulsory for freshmen and sophomores at Maryland. The development 
of good varsity teams from this overall boxing program is secondary to the main objective 
which is to teach boxing to the maximum number of students. 

After the hand to hand engagements on Guadalcanal Colonel Miller received letters from 
Marines who wrote, "But for what you taught me I'd be dead." To Miller such letters justify 
a lifetime of devotion to the boxing game.

Paul Kostopoulos, Maryland, normally 

a 136 pounder, boxed a draw with 
Army's Larry Lucas. It was a hard 
fought bout with the ballots split three 


Don Oliver, at 1.65, won a unanimous 
decision for Maryland over Army's Joe 
I.atleur. Oliver had too much experience 
for the courageous cadet. 

Captain Hob Gregson, at L66, won a 
close split decision from Army's Tom 
Hastings. Gregson had the class while 
Hastings proved to be a willing mixer, 
in great condition. The cadet finished 
fast and strong. It was a split decision. 

At 175, Maryland's Bob Smith turned 
in his best ring job by winning a close 
decision from Army's very good boxer, 
Pete Monfore. It was a bang-up battle, 
with the favored Monfore bothered by 
Smith's southpaw stance. There was 
little to choose between the two at the 
finish, some ringsiders of the opinion 
that Army had the edge, others agreed 
with the verdict, and some figured a 
draw would have been the proper de- 
cision. The slips showed a 2-1 split. 

George "Baby r Face" Fuller, making 
his varsity debut for Maryland turned 
in a grade "A" job with the nod going 
to Army's hard punching Bill Kellum. 
It was a bruising battle of fast, even 
action and resulted in a split verdict in 
favor of Army.

won 8-0" to "it should have been a 4-4 

In the afterpiece Maryland's fresh- 
men, coached by Frank Cronin, defeated, 
due to four forfeits, Fairfax Hi's fine 
boxing team. Coach R. A. Williams 
fielded only four boxers and unfortu- 
nately for the junior Terps their 
strength was in the brackets which 
Fairfax forfeited. The score was 5% to 
2^ but in the actual boxing Fairfax 
scored 2% points to Maryland's \ x h. 

125 pounds, Jack Letzer (Md.) and Bob 
Burns drew. 130 pounds, Ray Canard (F) de- 
cisioned Bob Simons. 135 pounds, (Md.) won

Foster Boner IF) TKO Dave Ortel (1:50 first 
round). Unlimited. Maryland won by forfeit. 

Spartans 5 '/2 ; Terps 2 1/2 

An exceptionally powerful Michigan 
State team defeated Maryland at 
Lansing, 5Y2 to 2%. 

At 125 Maryland's Al Glass lost by 
decision to State's Henry Amos. Both 
being counter-punchers there was not 
much action. Amos was the more ag- 

At 130 the Terps' Andy Quattrocchi 
stopped the Spartan's Johnny Flynn in 
less than a round. Andy dropped Flynn 
early. The latter came off the deck 

rarin' to go. He half pushed, half 
wrestled Andy to the floor. A fusillade 

of body punches brought the Spartan's 

guard down and a right upporcut 

dropped Flynn Mat on his back for the 

full count. 

\! 186 Maryland's A I Salkowski 
dropped a close decision to Michigan's 
Jack Tierney. Al boxed beautifully to 
take the opening round ami hold Tierney 
oven in the second. The third round was 
Tierney's and the nod wont with it. 

At 145 Maryland's Paul Kostopoulos, 
in tip-top condition, carried the fight to 
hard punching Pat Dougherty. It was a 
rousing melee with the Terp finishing 
strong and landing solid punches to 
take the decision. 

At 155 the Terps' Don Oliver came 
away with a draw after a slambang 
battle with Spartan Ray Johnston. 
What edge there was belonged to Don. 

At 165 Terrapin captain, Bob Greg- 
son, boxed beautifully to take two 
rounds from tough and rugged Jimmy 
Gemmell. Bob ran out of gas in the 
third. It cost him the bout. 

At 175 Maryland's Bob Smith ran 
into State's Chuck Speiser, runner-up 
lightheavy of the 1948 U. S. Olympic 
Team. Far and away ahead of the 
usual college talent, Speiser outclassed 
Smith. Bob bled from the nose in round 
two and the bout was stopped at the 
end of the round, the decision going to 

In the unlimited bout State's Gabby 
Marek scored two knockdowns over 
Maryland's George Fuller, whereupon 
the bout was halted and awarded to 
Marek. Fuller was not badly hurt and 
v/anted to continue. 

Johnny Weber, Detroit's No. 1 referee 
handled the bouts in grade "A" style. 

Michigan State has an outstandingly 
good team; the most potent opposition 
the Terps have encountered in recent 
years. Off of their form against Mary- 
land no one figures to defeat the

'Home meets at College Park. 
Terp Colors 

The University of Maryland boxing 
team which, with Georgetown, was the 
first to introduce the lightweight inter- 
collegiate head harness in competition 
in 1949, this year, dressed up that 
equipment in colored leather. 

For the 1950 season against The 
Citadel, the Terps wear not only golden 
yellow head harnesses to match Mary- 
land's black and gold uniforms but 
also golden leather gloves while their 
opponents wear black mitts. 

The gloves are the new Ben Lee type 
with form-fitting rubberized, unpacka- 
ble and unbreakable padding. The 
punching surface features the resiliency 
of an inflated rubber ball. Terp Coach 
Heinie Miller (old timers aver he used 
a boxing glove for a teething ring) says 
this is the greatest improvement in box- 
ing gloves in the history of the ring

He was a long time personal friend of 
Maryland's coach, Heinie Miller. They

longer route he was a great tutor, a 
good friend and a fine gentleman. Box- 
ing will miss a grand fellow.

IRYLAND'S basketball 
team opened the L949 
1950 season at Blacks- 
burg with a loss to 
Virginia Tech, t;.'i-f>7, in 
a Southern Conference 
basketball battle that 
was all tied up 16 times. 
The night's top scorer was Mary- 
land's Lee Brawley, who pumped in 
21 points. 

Vols 61 ; Terps 10 

The Terps lost to the Tennessee Vols, 
61-40, at Nashville. Tennessee took an 
early lead and pulled away in the second 
half after holding a 22-17 half time 

Bernie Smith was the only Maryland 
player to score in double figures as he 
totaled 10 points. 

Cavaliers 66; Terps 56 

Virginia took a 66-56 decision over 
Maryland at Charlottesville. 

High scoring honors went to the 
Terps' 6-foot-2-inch center, Brawley, 
who hit the hoops for 25 points. 

A Virginia rally put the Cavaliers 
ahead for the first time after 15 min- 
utes of the first half had elapsed. 

Terps 65; Generals 46 

Led by Charlie Mack and Lee 
Brawley, Maryland defeated Washing- 
ton and Lee, 65-46, at College Park, the 
first victory of the season, that snapped 
a three-game losing streak. 

Mack hammered in 21 points while 
Brawley chipped in 16. Dave Hedge led 
the losing Generals with 14 points. 





It was a close ball game for the first 
six minutes, but at that stage the Terps 
pulled away and stayed in front the 
rest of the way. They held a 28-20 half- 
time advantage. 

In addition to their scoring, Mack 
and Brawley were impressive under the 
board, retrieving stray shots time and 
time again. 

Penn 54; Terps 52 

Maryland lost a heartbreaking 54-52 
decision to Pennsylvania before 2,500 
in Philadelphia. 

For the Terps, Brawley was high 
with 10 points. Charlie Mack followed 
with 9. The Terps eyed the basket 71 





times for a total of 19 field goals, while 
Penn made 85 attempts for a total of 
17 scored through the net. 

It was a hard luck night for Flucie 
Stewart's Old Liners when with three 
minutes left sophomore Dick Koffen- 
berger muffed a shot under the basket 
which may have been the turning point 
in favor of the game. The game was 
tied up 11 times. Maryland led at half, 

Tigers 60; Terps 55 

Maryland lost to Clemson, 60 to 55, 
at College Park. 

Lee Brawley, Dick Koffenberger and 
Bob Murray each tallied 12 points for 
the Terps. 

Navy 75; Terps 62 

Navy Midshipmen took Maryland in 
tow at Annapolis, 75-62. 

The Terps' individual scoring ace was 
Brawley, who had himself a field day 
with 26 points. 

The game see-sawed back and forth 
during the first half with the score 
being 28-27 at the gun favor Navy. 

Maryland led for the first seven 
minutes, 14-13. They kept within one 
point of Navy for awhile and then the 
Middies pulled ahead and retained the 
lead for the rest of the way by not less 
than five points. 

Bishops 75; Terps 71 

Ohio Wesleyan, last year's Ohio con- 
ference champion, had to turn back a 
great rally by the Maryland cagers to 
eke out a 75-71 victory at College Park. 

Brawley led the Terps with 16 points, 
four of which came in the last minute 
of play to put the Terrapins within 
striking distance. 

Big Bob Murray chipped in with 12 
points to aid the Terp cause. 

The game started out as an even con- 
test during the first half with the lead 


changing hands eight times before the 
Bishopi managed to tr«'t a ::''.-_".i ad- 
vantage at intermission. 

Tarheels ".". ; Terpe S3 
Inability to hit from the foul line, 

which has Keen costly several time- 

this year, again proved to be the de- 
ciding factor in the 56-63 loss U) North 
Carolina at Chapel Hill. 

The Terpa outscored the Tarheels 21- 

Jn from the Boor, hut 13 misses in 24 
foil] attempts lost the contest. North 

Carolina made good on IT of 23 tree 


Trailing 26-31 at halftime, the Liners 
came hack to tie the count four times 
in the second half. The Tarheels broke 
a 17-all deadlock with five minutes re- 
maining and hung on to win. Charlie 
.Mack and Dick Koffenberger led the 
Terpa with 14 tallies apiece 

Blue Devils 58; Terps 46 
A i Durham the Terps played a list- 
less floor game and went down before 
Duke, 58-40. Lee Brawley, the team's 
leading scorer for the season, led a be- 
lated second half rally after the Blue 
Devils had piled up a commanding 
47-30 advantage. Brawley's 16 points 
topped both squads. 

Terps 71 ; Hoy as 65 

After seven straight losses and only 
one win in nine starts, the Terps as- 
tounded the crowd at Washington's Na- 
tional Guard Armory, when they ex- 
ploded to take Georgetown, 71 to 65. 

It was basket-for-basket pace in the 
second half and a thrilling finish. Mary- 
land appeared en route to an over- 
whelming defeat as Georgetown rolled 
up a 31-19 lead in the first 15 minutes. 

But the Terps went into a scoring 
streak of their own and, took the lead — 
and held it. 

The key player for the Terps was 
Dick Koffenberger. He poured in 19 
points, with all his field goals on mid- 
way set shots. 

Maryland controlled the backboards 
in the second half, intercepted the 
Hoyas' passes and out-played the team 
that had won five of its six previous 

The Terps finished fast. Charlie Mack 
dribbling in for a layup and counted 
two foul shots to seal the triumph. 

Bob Murray and Lee Brawley were 
giving Koffenberger a big hand for 

Maryland and in addition to valuable 
backboard play, tossed in 15 points 

Indians 56; Terps .~>2 
William and Mary's Indians squeezed 
through to a 56-62 triumph over the 
Terps at College Park. 

The Indians were hard-pressed to turn 
back the tenacious Terps, who look 
much better on the floor than their 
record indicate.-. 

Twelve times the lead changed hands 
during the hectic 40 minutes and six 
times it was tied. Not until the final 
four minutes did the Virginians manage 
to move in front and make it stick. 

Spider- :,'»; Terpa 19 
The Richmond Spider- defeated the 
rerp . 59-49. 

After a slow and erratic start the 
Spider- took the lead at 15-14 midway 
in the first half and were never headed. 
They had a 20-24 advantage at the half 
and led hy 10 points at the close of the 

game. The lead changed hands six times 
before the Spiders finally took control 

after 13 minutes of play. 

Hoh Murray and Fran!; Armsworthy 
each with 10 points led the Old Liner-' 

Colonials 72; Terps 51 

George Washington, sparked hy 
Johnny Moffatt, defeated Maryland, 
72 to 6 1 . 

Inability to stop Moffatt, who scored 
24 points, plus the Terps missing 15 
foul tries, tells the sad tale. 

The Terps were never in the running 
after the first few minutes of play. With 
the score 3-3, Moffatt made the first of 
his 11 field goals, putting the Colonials 
ahead, where they remained. 

After the first six minutes, the score 
was 18-8. The Hatchetmen maintained 
an advantage of 10 points or more until 
the final gun. 

George Washington sent 14 men into 
the game and Maryland only one less. 

Lee Brawley, who got 12 points, led 
the Terps, but like most of his mates 
missed many easy shots. 

Indians 64 ; Terps 56 

Coach Flucie Stewart's Terrapins are 
not blessed by a lineup including such 
as Chester Giermak, who dropped in 29 
points to lead William and Mary's In- 
dians to a 64-56 win. 

The Old Liners led at halftime, 2-26, 
and swelled their advantage to 29-26 on 
one of Smith's baskets. 

Then Giermak took personal charge 
of things. He poured in a hook shot that 
put the Tribe out front and connected 
with two more baskets in rapid suc- 

Maryland never caught up again al- 
though with three and one-half minutes 
left, the Old Liners managed to pull up 
to within four points, 58-54. Giermak 
then booked in two more field goals. 

Giermak took 30 shots from the floor. 
Thirteen of them fell true. 

Terps 65; Cadets 53 

The Terps, after being tied twice in 
the early moments of the game, went on 
a scoring spree to defeat V.M.I., 65-53, 
at College Park. 

It was the third victory of the season 
for the Terps in 10 contests. 

The Terps were paced by Lee Braw- 
ley, sharp-shooting forward who found 
the nets for 11 field goals and three foul 
tosses for a total of 25 points. 

Maryland ran up a 24-point advan- 
tage with two ami one-half minutes re- 
maining and Coach Flucie Stewart used 
every available player for the remainder 
of the game. 

Tarheels 69; Terps 56 
North Carolina defeated Maryland. 

The Terrapins made a close contest 
of it for thi' first six minutes and 35 
seconds of the game hut ran out of 
petrol early. 


The Tarheels pulled away to a 44-30 
lead at the halftime. Maryland tossed in 
six quick points in the early moments 
of the second period to whittle the 
Carolina lead down to eight points, but 
again the Terp attack bogged down and 
Carolina settled down to pouring it on. Brawley led the Terps with a 
12-point stint. 

Cadets 62; Terps 61 

At Lexington V.M.I. defeated Mary- 
land, 62-61. 

Frank Armsworthy opened the scor- 
ing and gave Maryland the lead the 
only time the Terps held it during the 

The Marylanders came within one 
point of the Cadets at the beginning 
and end of the second half, but both 
times V.M.I, rallied. 

Terps 67; Blue Devils ~>7 

Pitied and downtrodden, Coach Flucie 
Stewart's Terps rose in just ire at 
College Park and slapped down league- 
leading Duke, 67 to 57, the BIG upset 
of the year. 

The Terps made foul shots count, 
sinking 25 of 34 chances. Duke made 
good on 17 of 24 free shots. The Blue 
Devils had won 8 of 9 Conference starts 
and were topheavy favorites. This time 
the Terps did not run out of petrol. 

It was anybody's game until the last 
10 minutes when the Terps became boss 
and stayed that way. Twelve times the 
lead changed hands in earlier stages of 
the Stewart Surprise Party. 

Duke shot ahead at the start with a 
13-6 lead. Then Bob Murray tied it at 
13 all and Brawley banged in a floor 
shot to make it 31 to 30 with Maryland 
ahead at the half. 

Little Bernie Smith popped in a long 
one to give the Old Line a 46 to 45 
lead. From there on in the desperate 
Dukes tried everything in the book but 
the inspired Terps just held onto the 
buggy whip and kept on driving for 
the big upset. Smith was the star with 
a 22 point performance. 

Gamecocks 61 ; Terps 56 

South Carolina came from behind to 
take the Terps 61-56. 

Maryland held a four-point advantage 
with less than three minutes when the 
Gamecocks went ahead. 

Boh Murray was the Terps' chief 
gunner with 16 points while Frank 
Armsworthy chipped in with 11. 

The Terps dominated play in the 
first half. 

A tight defense kept Maryland's 
Brawley in check. 

Terps 70; Cavaliers 52 

Maryland had a good night to take 
Virginia, 70-52. Controlling the ball off 
both backboards the Terps looked like 
a real good ball club. 

Bob Murray and Charlie Mack were 
chief gunners for the Terps scoring 40 
points between them. 

The Terps shot well from the field 
and also showed accuracy at free 
throws with 18 single-pointers.

director of Athletics and Head Football 

JAMES M. (Big Jim) Tatum will 
I remain as head football coach and 
iletic director at Maryland "for at 
ist three more years." He made this 
titifying statement at the Gator Bowl 
liquet in Jacksonville on the night of 
nuary 2 following the impressive 20-7 
tory over Missouri that afternoon. 

His pronouncement came at a time 

when the University of Florida was de- 
clared hot on his trail as a possible suc- 
cessor to Hear Wolf, who had vacate I 
the job at Gainesville. Since that time 
the Florida berth has been taken by 
Hob Woodruff, who was a successful 
mentor at Baylor. 

President Byrd, however, had beaten 
Tatum to the gun. He rather emphat- 
ically stated over the radio between 
halves of the Gator Howl engagement 
that Jim would stay at Maryland. That 
evening at the Gator Bowl party we saw 
our prexy and Jim in earnest but smil- 
ing conversation and it was not long 
afterward that Tatum spoke as quoted 

With the new stadium coming up and 
with Tatum likely to have an even bet- 
ter team in 1950 than the great 1949 
outfit, Jim's decision should be a happy 
one for all concerned. Knowing him to 
be smart, we sorta figured all along that 
he wouldn't be leaving. 

And, incidentally, according to Dr. 
Byrd, who had an official count made, 
there will be 34,680 permanent seats in 
the new stadium as it will appear next 
fall. These with about 16,000 bleacher 
seats in the open end of the stadium 
will give a capacity of slightly more 
than 50,000 for the 1950 games. 

And to the almost constant question, 
"Will the stadium be ready by next 
Fall," the answer is a positive "YES."

my part. I got him to give class to

ne of the fellows may go a long way

low like Charlie around to help them 
keep their feet on the ground." 

Vhen Keller stood up to speak they 
stood up in honor of the Terp star. 

Said Keller: "You all have been very 
kind. I never was the ball player I 
hoped to be. But I am proud to have 
played in the same outfield with Tommy 
Henrich . . . and with Joe DiMaggio, 
the greatest ball player I've ever seen." 

Keller never was the same after suffering 
a back injury in 1947 although he gamely 
tried to make a comeback. He even went 
down to Newark in the International League 
for a few weeks. 

Keller, a veteran of more than a decade 
in the majors, never has played for anyone 
except the Yankees. He joined the Newark 
Bears of the International League upon 
graduation from the University of Maryland 
and moved up to New York two years later. 

Keller owns a farm outside Frederick. 

Later Keller announced that he had joined 
the Detroit Tigers and expected to play for 
his old Yankee teammate. Manager Red 

Red indicated that Keller's place in the 
Tiger outfield would be settled at spring 
training in Lakeland, Fla. 

Keller is still regarded as a lonq-ball 
hitter and that has been one of the Tigers' 
chief needs.

mber of the first football team 
ched by President Byrd in 1912

'HEN we wrote 

the article for 
the last issue of "MARY- 
LAND," naming an all- 
time aggregation during 
Curley Byrd's football 
coaching regime — 1912 
through 1934 — we prom- 
ised we would follow with 
selections for the era 
extending from 1892 
through 1911 and for the 
period from 193S through 

We are going to keep 
our word in only halfway 
picking a combination for 
period, which has proved 
quite a time-taking research job, and 
letting the other go for the more appro- 
priate time just preceding the opening 
of the 1950 football campaign. 

We are presenting some pretty fair 
"country ball play- 
ers, and we mean 
that literally, in 
this bunch of old- 
timers. Most of 
them hailed from 
the "sticks," seven 
being from within 
the State, two from 
the District of Co- 
lumbia, and one 
each from rural 
sections of Virginia 
and New York. The 
eleven is made up of athletes who were 
rugged individuals and most of them 
were practically strangers to the game 
when they matriculated at College Park. 
We even are told that our esteemed 
president, who is getting no favors 
when he is picked as the quarterback 
on the all-star outfit, was a 'wharf rat' 
in his youthful days in Cristield, Bid. 
All we know to back this up is that he 
is an expert swimmer, an "Annie 
Oakley" with a gun of any type and 

that he picked up a few Bimoleons in 

the boxing ring while still in college.

As said in a previous article, the cap- 
tain of the team prior to 1902 also 
served as coach, so Peters, Harding, 
Dunbar and Lewis acted in both ca- 

We saw only two of these fellows 
play- Byrd and Kemp — and Curley was 
at quarterback for George Washington 
in 1908 the day we watched him do a 
brilliant job against Bucknell. Among 
other things he pulled that day was a 
"quarterback sneak" for a touchdown. 

Curley wasn't much of a kicker or 
passer but he surely could think and 
carry that ball. He started out as a 139 
pound end with Maryland Agricultural 
College in 1905 after begging to get a 
suit but shifted to his natural habitat 
at quarterback for the next two seasons 

where he could direct matters. Then, a 
now, he seldom fumbled the ball an 
was a consistent ground gainer. 

Figvea in \n I pad 

Kemp performed at fullback in th 
game We saw him play, a stunning 6- 
upset of Western Maryland in 1911. H 
had been shifteil from end for that con 
test by Byrd, special coach for Uu 
and on the strength of the job he did i 
a strange position he could have ou 
vote for either spot. Kemp also was fas 
enough to be a star member of the trac 
team for a couple of seasons. 

He was just about the same size a 
an athlete as he is now as director of th 
Experiment Station. Byrd, who backe 
Kemp's selection, has the same hat siz 
as president as when he was a freshma 
in 1905, but his waistline is somewha 
larger and his weight considerabl 
greater. His capacity for work seem 
to grow with the years. 

Curley was an ace baseball pitchei 
hurling for San Francisco of the Pacifi 
Coast League in 1910, held all the das 
records at Maryland for a number o 
years and was handy with a tenni 
racket. He quit San Francisco and base 
ball in the middle of the 1910 seasoi 
although he was marked for delivery t 
the Chicago White Sox the next spring 

Lewis and Stol) Lauded 

Byrd, who published a pamphlet o: 
M.A.C. athletics in 1914. made it almos 
unnecessary for us to eulogize Lewi 

and Stoll. as he did it as follows:

Three oiher men prominent on the campus who figured in 
early day football at College Park are, left above. Dr. Thomas 
Braddeley Symons. dean of the College of Agriculture and 
director of the Extension Service: Dr. Ernest N. Cory, center 
above, head of the Entomology Department, and H. Burton 
Shipley, baseball coach and physical education instructor. 

Symons was a regular guard in 1897 and 1898. while Cory 
was captain and end on the 1908 eleven. At that lime Cory 
was a 130 pounder, who also was a trackman, and he is no 
heavyweight now. Shipley, the only guy in Maryland history 
to win six letters each in football and baseball, made his start 
at M.A.C. on Cory's team, which was managed by Senator 
Millard E. Tydings. Shipley is pictured at the right as he 
appeared in those early days.

tin- greatesl football players who ever 

wore the black and gold. He was noth- 
ing less than brilliant in the haekfield. 
Those who remember him rati' him sec- 
ond only to Lewis." Byrd did not men- 
tion that Stoll also played tackle and 
end at times, and was an all-around 
trackman who ran the 220 and 440 and 
the hurdles and high and broad jumped. 
He was track captain in 1903. 

Cooper Gives Much Help 

Barney Cooper, with whom we had a 
long bull session in Jacksonville after 
the Gator Bowl game, was just as en- 
thusiastic about Stoll as Byrd. He also, 
like Byrd, backed the selection of Bow- 
land at tackle, Evans at guard, and 
Ruffner at center, and forcibly declared 
that Curley was the smartest and best 
quarterback of his time. He also added 
that Ruffner was the smartest and most 
accurate passing center he ever played 
behind. We were in sort of a dilemma 
for a center until we talked with Barney 
but he emphatically removed all doubt. 

We often have heard Dr. Byrd laud 
Cooper, who now is a contractor in 
Miami, as a rip-snorting ball carrier 
who could have made any team in the 
country in his day. Barney stayed over 
to share the coaching job in 1908 but 
operated in that capacity only one year. 

We also got strong backing for Dun- 
bar as guard while we were in Jackson- 
ville from Bill Groff who was in school 
at the same time. Mr. and Mrs. Groff, 
on vacation in Florida, viewed the Gator 
Bowl game. Groff said Dunbar, the only 
"furriner" on the team, really was out- 

Selections Are Justified 

This left only Peters and Harding, 
who is deceased, and research we have 
done on them fully justified their selec- 
tions. Peters was praised both as a 
physical and mental ace. He also was 
an able trackster, running the 220, 
hurdling and tossing the weights, and 
played right field on the 1901 nine that 
won 21 of 22 games. This ball team, in- 
cidentally, was managed by Graduate 
Manager Bill Cobey's dad. 

Harding, who later became Curley's 
boss for a time while surveyor of the 
District of Columbia, was rugged and 
aggressive and doubtless could have 
held his own in any company. As cap- 
tain of the 1894 ball team he hit .387. 

Peters' present location is unknown; 
Bowland last was reported as a contrac- 
tor in Baltimore; Dunbar is living in 
Little Valley, N. Y.; Evans' address is 
lacking; Ruffner, who retired as head of 
the Dairy and Husbandry Department 
at North Carolina State, hasn't been 
heard from recently; Stoll is said to still 
be teaching on the Eastern Shore, and 
Lewis is located at Mechanicsville, Md.

Krouse-Patented Score Board Revives Failing Interest 

In Collegiate Mat Sport 

/.' i Hill Leu u 

^JPECTATOB interest and participa- 
^^tion in intercollegiate wrestling, 
which had been on the downgrade since 
1939, is now being revived by Terrapin 
Wrestling Coach William "Sully" 
Krouse'a invention the revealing "eye," 

a plywood scoreboard which was con- 
structed upon the principles used in 
Other sports-baseball, basketball, where 
the spectator can get a quick running 
account of what is going on. 

But the "eye" goes further. It also 
tells how and by whom points are 
scored. The "eye" is divided into three 
sections. The top section lists the two 
teams involved and the participants in 
the current match, and also contains 
three red lights, two showing advantage 
and a third neutral. The center portion 
displays the rosters of each team. In 
the bottom third, there are four flashing 
lights indicating- how points are scored 
— escapes, reversals, or near-falls. 

Seeks Spectator Interest 

"Sully" first became aware of the lack 
of spectator interest in intercollegiate 
grappling while he himself was an 
undergrad at the College Park, Mary- 
land institution. This was in 1939, when 
the point system was established as the 
judging basis for all collegiate matches. 
Previously, matches had been decided on 
a time advantage plus the referee's de- 

Krouse was graduated in 1941. after 
having earned a reputation as one of 
the best heavyweights in the area, win- 
ning the District AAU crown for four 
straight years. Then "Sully" taught 
physical education at Baltimore's South- 
ern High School until the fall of 1945 
when he returned to his alma mater. 

During his absence from Maryland, 
the hefty 260-pounder was continually 
toying with the idea of constructing a 
new type wrestling scoreboard that 
would recapture spectator interest for 
collegiate matches. His dream became a 
reality this winter after wrestling at 
Maryland lost its minor status and was 
established as a varsity sport. 

"Sully" brought his team together in 
September and explained his new scor- 
ing system to them. Their response was

By Ripley 

Coach Miller 

/> \ Harry Beaudoum 

In the Baltimore Evening Sun 

sportswriter who went straight, 
celebrates his golden anniversary as a 
member of the boxing fraternity this 
year. They have been BO grand years 

of credit to Maryland's ring coach and 
to the game in which 
his heart lies. 

Chairman of the 
District of Columbia 
Boxing Commission 
and for the past ten 
years Executive Sec- 
retary of the Na- 
tional Boxing Asso- 
ciation and an N.B.A. 
past president, 
Heinie recently re- 
ceived yet another 
honor when the 
N.C.A.A.'s Tug Wil- 
son appointed him 
to that body's Pan 
American and Olym- 
pic Games Boxing Committee. 

Busy With Terps 

The Colonel — he served a total of 40 
years, half of them on active duty — 
is currently engaged in fashioning an- 
other strong team at College Park, 
where he has been head coach since 
1937. He turned out a Southern Con- 
ference championship crew the very 
first year and repeated that success in 
'39. The following year, 13 months be- 
fore Pearl Harbor, he was granted a 
leave of absence to re-enter the Corps. 
He retired as a colonel in 1946 after re- 
turning from the Pacific. 

Harvey L. Miller, whose nickname, 
"Heinie," was hung on all recruits 
named Miller from Milwaukee, has 
been in and out of the service since 
1906, when he was carried away by a 
poster and enlisted to serve on the 
U.S.S. Constellation, a sailing ship, and 
received the fabulous pay of $9 a month. 
He was "an old China hand" long before 
World War I. 

The Early Years 

Though he won titles while in the 
service, his interest in boxing antedated 
his enlistment. As a kid in Milwaukee, 
Heinie fought his first bout at the age 
of 12 in the loft of a barm. He fought 
for $5, winner take all, and recalls that 
in those days a fin would buy a suit of 

On Lake Pewaukee 

During vacations from school, Heinie 
and a group of other beardless pugil- 
ists toured the summer cottage colonies 
surrounding Pewaukee Lake. They'd 
pitch a ring on the sod, belt each other 
around, and pass the hat. 

A little later, he boxed in Milwau- 
kee's Grand Theater on a vaudeville 
card that included a bout between Jake 

Kilrain and John L. Sullivan, both long 
past their prime. 

lleinie's folks had hopes of seeing 
their boy become a minister, hut when 

boxing interfered with his studies to the 
extent that he was on the verge of 
thinking out of Concordia College, his 
father told him to get himself a job 
and begin a life of honest toil. 
Heinie enlisted. 

One For Ripley 

After winning the inter-service ban- 
tamweight crown he won the Far East- 
ern featherweight and lightweight 
championships, both professional titles, 
over the rather tedious routes of 20 and 
25 rounds. His lightweight title scrap, 
a scheduled 45 rounder with Jimmy 
Dwyer, of Boston and Australia, was so 
weird that Ripley used it as subject 
matter for the adjacent Believe-It-Or- 
Not cartoon. 

Heinie was floored 13 times in four 
rounds but came back to knock out 
Dwyer — in the thirteenth. Miller col- 
lapsed the minute it was over and later 
checked into sick bay with a broken 
nose, a damaged knee cap, and a few 
busted ribs. He went on to roll up a 
string of 59 knockouts. 

Booted Senators Home 
Miller began his writing career in 
1915, as a reporter on the San Francisco 
Call-Post. Some years later he was 
sports editor of the old Washington 
Herald. During his two-year tenure in 
that capacity the Senators twice won 
the American League pennant. Heinie 
says, "I was just lucky, I guess." 

Some years before this, in 1910, to 
be exact, he married a Lexington (Ky.) 
girl named Clay Keene Patterson, 
graduate of Butler University. Heinie 
met her as they boarded a train in San 
Francisco, and proposed en route. They 
were married a few days later in In- 
dianapolis. He was a fast mover, in and 
out of the ring. 

Still Scribbling 

His writing career also included serv- 
ing as managing editor of two service 
publications, Our Navy and Coast 
Guard Magazine, which he had founded. 
Though he is kept busy at Maryland as 
boxing coach, professor of journalism, 
and Director of Publications, he still 
finds time to pound out an occasional 
article for national magazines. He also 
publishes "MARYLAND," the alumni 

His job as coach is a tough one in 
that most of his candidates, coming 
from Maryland high schools, have had 
no previous experience. That he has 
done a superior job is evidenced by his 
record of three Conference champion- 
ships (the Old Liners picked up an- 
other when he returned to the helm in 
'47) as well as the number of individual 
stars. Frank Cronin, Newton Cox and 

Eddie Rieder are just a few of those 
who laced on their first gloves at Mary- 

Fresh Guy 

Heinie Miller has crammed a lot of 
living into his 61 years. His energy and 
wit today are as boundless as they were 
one night in the Philippines, back in '09, 
when the famed Marine officer, Smedley 
Butler, jumped him. 

Heinie had just licked a little Marine 
corporal named Johnny Duncan and was 
climbing out of the ring when the irate 
Butler, then a captain, waggled a finger 
at him and said, "That was a very 
lucky punch." 

Just A Youngster 

"But they pay off on 'em," Miller 

"You're a pretty fresh kid," Butler 
roared. "Why, fifteen years ago I could 
have licked you myself!" 

"I should hope so, Captain," Heinie 
replied. "I was only six years old then."

fTNIVERSITY of Maryland's team 
J of Mario Salvanelli, Al Buehler, 
George McGowan and Tyson Creamer 
won its college mile relay event in the 
Mil rose A. A. games at Madison Square 

The Terrapins finished in 3:28.4 to 
beat City College of New York, St. 
Francis and St. John's. 

Coach Jim Kehoe 
is still chuckling 
about the surprise 
win. Its time wasn't 
sensational but it 
was a patched up 
team with Creamer, 
normally a 2-miler, 
Salvanelli, a hurdler, 
and Buehler, a 
sophomore running 
in spiked shoes for 
the first time. 
Buehler's quarter of 
A 51.9 was the second 

L - ^ fastest on the Terp 

squad, but because 
he was a substitute 
for Browning and entries had to be sent 
in weeks before the meet, the Hagers- 
town youngster didn't even get credit 

tin appearing in the line-up. 

Kehoe, who dropped George Mc- 
Gowan, his anchor man, into the No. 3 
position to keep the Terps in the race, 
credits (reamer's smart running on the 
anchor lap with getting the team home 
first. It is noteworthy, however, that 

the coach's strategy also panned out. 

"Remember Whiteford ? " 

By Louis M. Hatter 

III ^:ill 

Lieut. Col. Roger Whiteford was 
right at home in the 5th Regiment 
Armory as co-director of the fourth 

Coach Kehoe 

annual 175th Regiment-South Atlantic 
A.A.U. games. 

Much of the military and sports life 
of the colorful little colonel from Rux- 
ton had its roots in activities conducted 
on the broad floor of the massive Hoff- 
man Street auditorium. 

Colonel Whiteford ran crosscountry 
and the quarter and half mile at Mary- 
land. He teamed with Henry Matthews, 
of Chestertown, Md., and Lewis Thomas 
and Charles Pugh, both of Washington, 
on a record-setting Terp relay team 
that beat Harvard, Yale and Penn. 

Against Navy, Colonel Whiteford 
once had a shoe spiked off early in a 
half-mile race. He continued on dogged- 
ly to take third place, running with one 
foot bare. 

At indoor meets, Colonel W r hiteford 
competed with such past well-known 
track figures as Buck Hartung, Lewis 
Clarke, Willy Andrews, Ridgely Ed- 
wards, Red Bechtol and Don Stevens. 
He was a regular entry in the "P-F-P 
Games" (Police-Firemen-Post Office) 
sponsored by The Sunpapcrs in the 
Stadium during the middle-twenties. 

Colonel W r hiteford's height of 5-feet 
4% inches barely qualified him for 
R.O.T.C. training at Maryland. Once ac- 
cepted, he furthered a long military 
service — which still continues in reserve 
activities — with duty in Maryland's 
celebrated "Dandy Fifth." 

During World War II, as commander 
of the 1st Battalion of the 175th In- 
fantry Regiment, Colonel Whiteford 
earned the Silver Star in recognition of 
gallantry and inspirational leadership 
in action in Normandy, June 17, 1944. 
during the invasion of France. 

He also has been awarded the Bronze 
Star with oak leaf clusters, two Purple 
Hearts and the high Russian Order of 
War for the Fatherland for his part in 
the operation which linked up the 29th 
Division with Russian forces on the 
Elbe River on May 3. 1945. 

At L36 pounds, he was captain and 
halfback of City's football team. He 


also was field leader of the track and 
field team and set a scholastic record. 
At the University of Maryland he cap- 
tained the track team and was a mem- 
ber of the fastest one-mile relay team 
in the history of the College Park school 
when he graduated in 1927. 

In high school and college, and after- 
ward as a middle-distance runner, 
Colonel Whiteford competed often in 
the Baltimore armory at the same type 
of indoor meets as will be featured 
here two weeks hence. 

It was in the 5th Regiment Armory 
that Colonel Whiteford received much 
of the early military instruction that 
later qualified him for high military 
responsibility and enabled him, after 
twice being wounded, to emerge as one 
of Baltimore's heroes of World War II. 

While at City, Colonel Whiteford held 
the junior unlimited 220-yard dash rec- 
ord of 23.3 seconds until a husky East- 
ern Shore lad named Jimmy Foxx. 
later destined to become a baseball im- 
mortal, bettered it. 

Relay Team Sets Mark 

The Terrapin two-mile relay team set 
a new record in the 175th Repiment- 
South Atlantic association track meet 
in Baltimore, running the distance in 

The team was composed of T> 
Creamer, Al Buehler, Lindy Kehoe and 
Bob Palmer. 

Ed Matthews of Maryland placed 
third in the South Atlantic 500, and Ed 
Meier, Terp star, took second place in 
the 1,000-yard handicap. 

George Burklin of Maryland took 
fourth place in the 70-yard dash. 

Maryland also captured section A of 
the Monumental Mile Relay with Mario 
Salvanelli. Buehler, Bob Browning and 
Creamer in 3:29.4.

ERIC JOHNSTON, one of the most 
colorful figures before the Amer- 
ican public, will be the speaker at the 

University of Maryland's 1950 Com- 
mencement exercises at College Park 
on June 10, 1950, Dr. H. C. Byrd, Uni- 
versity President has announced. 

Mr. Johnston's career, motivated by 
initiative, energy and executive ability 
in various fields of endeavor, has 
ofttimes been cited for its inspirational 
value to young Americans. Maryland's 
1950 graduates may well profit from a 
study of his career. 


Commencement speaker. His career should 
inspire '50 graduates. 

While the public at large knows him 
as President of the Motion Picture As- 
sociation of America and, formerly for 
four years President of the Chamber 
of Commerce of the United States, the 
records of the U. S. Marine Corps also 
list him as a World War I officer who, 
after hostilities ceased in 1918, de- 
cided to make the Marine Corps his 
career. As a captain in the U. S. Lega- 
tion guard in Peking a serious injury 
forced him to retire. He was assistant 
naval attache at Peking and traveled 
extensively into interior China, Siberia 
and Japan. 

Eric Johnston, a native of Washing- 
ton, D. C. was brought up in Marys- 
ville, Montana and Spokane, Washing- 
ton. ,

Miss Alma H. Preinkert, Registrar, 
University of Maryland, has announced 
that the 1960 Commencement exercises 
will show 2,500 students graduating: 
from Maryland's various colleges, in- 
cluding the professional schools at 

This figure establishes an all time 
high for Maryland. 

The 1950 Commencement exercises 
will take place on The Quadrangle at 
College Park on Saturday, June 10, 

In 1948 and 1949 Commencement ex- 
ercises were held in Baltimore's Fifth 
Regiment Armory because there was 
no building at College Park of suffi- 
cient room to accommodate the crowd. 

This year even Baltimore's armory, a 
huge structure, lacks the space needed 
for seating the graduates and their 
closest kin. 

This situation should pretty well 
serve to confound the critics who have 
stated that Maryland's phenomenal 
physical expansion under President H. 
C. Byrd exceeded the need dictated by 
the academic and scholastic growth. 

Quite the contrary is, of course, true. 
The physical expansion has never yet 
caught up with the academic and scho- 
lastic need for such expansion. 

"YOU CANNOT . . ." 

Every now and then some magazine 
or newspaper reprints Abraham Lin- 
coln's famous "You Cannots." They do 
not seem to have many adherents these 
days; more's the pity. Since they are 
always good reading we're picking them 
up here, viz: — 

"You cannot build character and 
courage by taking away men's initiative 
and independence. 

"You cannot further the brotherhood 
of men by encouraging class hatred. 

"You cannot keep out of trouble by 
spending more than you earn. 

"You cannot strengthen the weak by 
weakening the strong. 

"You cannot help the poor by destroy- 
ing the rich. 

"You cannot establish sound security 
on borrowed money. 

"You cannot bring about prosperity 
by discouraging thrift. 

"You cannot help the wage earner by 
pulling down the wage payer. 

"You cannot help men permanently 
by doing for them what they could and 
should do for themselves."
